Dear Kingfield Neighbor – Understanding the Kingfield Neighborhood Association is as easy as ABC: KFNA is Always Building Community. Whether that is through discussions and exploration of hard issues like safety and racism, working side by side to improve our neighborhood, or through events where we celebrate being together, KFNA knows that community building work we do is the foundation of community safety.
The Kingfield Neighborhood Association connects neighbors to each other and to important actions and activities that help you amplify your voice in our city. For this work, we are asking for your donation to support KFNA today. The Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA) needs your financial support for the work we do in our neighborhood. Due to changes that City of Minneapolis made in how funds are distributed to neighborhood associations, KFNA has a $30,000 budget gap this year.
What would your life be like without your neighborhood association?
- Less Informed? Who else would host civic discussions with stakeholders on both sides debating the issues, to make sure you are educated and engaged in making change in your community?
- Lonelier? Who else would organize Nicollet Open Streets, all-day Election Polling Party, and Light It Up Kingfield as fun, local activities, simply as a way for you to build relationships to your neighbors and be out on our streets in neighborhood streets?
- More Isolated? Who else would collect and send you a weekly e-news of everything going on in Kingfield neighborhood and work with block clubs to provide up-to-date public safety tips?
- Quieter? And who would organize your musically gifted neighbors into street parties like PorchFest and On Thursdays We Sing so we share and see the talents of all our neighbors?
A gift of any size at this time of year helps us close our year-end funding gap. A sustaining monthly donation of $10 or $20 helps us plan for the future.
