BENEFITING: MADRID CULTURAL PROJECTS INC
This fund is for continuing road maintenance of two of our community's two main roads: Back Road and Cave Road, which were rebuilt after the flood of 2013 by Felix Hernandez thanks to approximately $20,000 raised by town residents and our friends.
Two years later, the roads are already needing small repairs. In order to keep our road in good shape, this fund is being established as an on-going fund to augment the very limited funds of the Madrid Landowner's Association in maintaining Cave and Back Road.
Once a substanial amount of money is in the fund, the Road Committee that oversaw the road fixes in 2013 will reconvene and meet with Felix to determine best uses of the fund. The long-term goal is to provide small, ongoing maintenance to the roads so that they don't become so problematic in the future as to require major fundraising.
To learn more about the 2013 committee's work, go to our Facebook's thank you page: https://www.facebook.com/madridthanksyou.
Feel free to share this page and to donate whenever you'd like, as we hope to keep the fundraiser live for months, or even years, to come.
Also, the Madrid Cultural Projects is the umbrella 501c3 for your funds and all funds will go to and through them. They, together with the Crowdrise site and credit card processors, will take about 12% of total proceeds raised. If you'd like reduce this amount to just 5%, you can instead mail your check. Please note that Crowdrise has a very tricky prompt that asks you if you'd like to add a percentage to your donation to cover fees: don't do this! It goes to Crowdrise, not to us.
Checks can be made out to Madrid Cultural Projects and sent to Carol Carpenter at 5 Kemp Road / Madrid, NM 87010 with the notation "Cave & Back Road Maintenance." Carol will enter them into the Crowdrise system as donations when she receives them. Please note that Carol is often away in New York for work, so sometimes it could take as long as two months for her to receive and enter your donation.
