submitted by froehlic@augsburg.edu

Make In-Person Debate Great- Support MNUDL This Give to the Max Day!

Fund Pizza Parties & Load the Bus

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate programming to more than 1,000 Twin Cities middle and high school students.

In-person programming is so important to support students’ mental health and their ability to connect with others. It’s worth it- but we expect costs to grow in the next year. Food costs have increased, and transportation already costs 3x what it did in 2019. That’s why our goal is to raise $50,000 before 2022 begins!

Join the great Minnesota day of giving by showing your support to debate!

The Impact of Your One-Time Gift:

$25 Covers the entry fee for one novice to attend their first high school tournament
$50 Helps compensate one alum for judging at a debate tournament
$75 Outfits one team’s rookie and novice members with a debate supply starter kit
$100 Funds a pizza recruitment party

Your Monthly Gift’s Yearly Impact:

$25/monthly Sponsors an experienced high schooler to become an assistant coach
$50/monthly Provides food for 100+ competitors at a Community Debate program
$75/monthly Provides camp tuition for a high schooler
$100/monthly Supports a Community Program debate coach’s stipend

Whether you make a one-time or monthly gift, you’ll help support our programs as we move into 2022. Any gift of any amount helps. And with the new CARES Act, you can claim a charitable donation deduction of up to $300, even if you don’t itemize. Make a donation.

Help our growing programs succeed as we return to in-person tournaments with safety and fun in mind. Support our Give to the Max campaign today!

Personal Care Assistants Needed

submitted by barrienb@augsburg.edu

Hi! My name is Bella and I am a second year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I am currently trying to find personal care assistants to help me in my day to day life here on campus. This would include getting me ready for the day, helping me get set up for class and assisting me around campus. I am currently looking for people who would want to work some hours during this Fall and Spring semester! If you are a pre-med or nursing student, this is a great opportunity to get experience with patient care. Plus, you get to be paid to have fun!

I really enjoy getting coffee, watching Netflix, drawing, and painting. I consider all my assistants as my friends and if you work for me, you are guaranteed a good time! If you are interested, please text me at: 612-345-2855 or email me at barrienb@augsburg.edu. Hope you will join!
