    You Can Help FUSE Win $5,000 or More

    Click to Help Us Make it to the Top 5

    We have been given a great opportunity, and we would like to ask for your support.  FUSE was selected to participate in the annual Steak’n, Bake’n Raffle hosted by the Rotary Club of Greenfield on September 18, 2021.  We are one of fourteen non-profits competing for grant dollars. To receive a grant, we must get enough votes to place in the Top 5.

    How do we do make it to the Top 5? We need your votes!  Every dollar we raise counts as a vote for FUSE. The Top 5 vote winners will split the net profits from the event. That could mean an additional $5,000 to $6,000 grant to add to the “votes”.  All of that goes back to empowering families and individuals with disabilities and mental health needs!

    There are a few ways to send in your votes. For those of you that typically give a year end gift, please consider sending it a few months early this year.  If you support us through donations at events, volunteering or in-kind gifts, please consider a donation to help us magnify your support with this opportunity.

    To support us at the Steak’n, Bake’n Raffle, make your check payable to FUSE and date it for  September 18, 2021.  Write Rotary in the memo line. Your donation is tax deductible, and you will receive a receipt after the event.  Please mail your donation to 1133 W. Main St., Ste E., Greenfield, IN 46140 by September 10 to ensure your vote counts. If you prefer to donate by credit card just click “donate”. As long as your card donation is received by September 18 at 2 pm it will count in the FUSE total.

Dads who choose to purchase alcohol will need to pay for those on a separate check. Meetings are hosted by Wade Davison. Just ask to be directed to the FUSE Dads table when you arrive.
