Our Goal: Securing Extension’s Next Century…The Centennial Campaign: The Foundation is launching the 2013 CCE-MC Centennial Campaign – “$100 for 100 years”. Our goal is to secure the next century of CCE-MC’s service to Monroe County by raising funds to help create significant new or improved Extension programs. Help us celebrate the significant
contributions that CCE-MC has made to our community over the past 100 years by contributing $1 or more for each of CCE-MC’s 100 years of service. Let your passion for Extension be your guide – help create a strong future for it through your generous contribution.
