Have you ever looked around the Marcell Family Center and thought, “Who pays for all this?”

The Marcell Family Center operates primarily because of generous donations from people just like you. While we are fortunate to have periodic grants from the Northland Foundation and Blandin Foundation, private contributions and user fees are the real ‘foundation’ of the Marcell Family Center.

In 2007, our facility expenses included: $4,400.00 for heat/fuel $3,500.00 for electricity $4,100.00 for insurance $3,500.00 for cleaning Plus over $9,000.00 to operate our children’s programs! And it takes much, much more…

So if you ever wonder if your contribution will make a difference; it does!

The Marcell Family Center needs your help.

Please donate what you can to the Center so we can continue to provide the facilities and services you’ve come to enjoy for nearly ten years.

The Marcell Family Center is a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit organization and your donations may be tax deductible. Please see Tim Johnson for more information or call 218-832-3444.
