BECHS announces Challenge Funds to help earn the remainder of the campaign goal

    February 27th, 2022

    Mankato, MN – BECHS is excited to announce BOLD news! For the final week of the BOLD $240k in 120 Days Campaign, we have BOLD challenge funds waiting to be released. Thanks to three generous challenge fund donors, the successful end of the campaign is in sight! In the next 7 days, we need to raise only $39,000 to release $61,000 to meet the goal of $240k in 120 Days!

    Here’s how it works:

    • After we raise $1,000, a donor will donate $1,000 to BECHS.
    • Once our History Heroes have raised an additional $10,000, a donor will release $10,000 to BECHS. Total raised = $22,000
    • And finally, when we reach $50,000 total raised, the remaining $50,000 will be donated by a third generous donor bringing the total to $100,000 raised in 7 days!

    Your BOLD History Hero contribution today is the BOLD first step to provide the resources and staffing needed to move the BOLD vision of an expanded History Center forward. Donations can be made online at or by mailing a check to 424 Warren Street, Mankato MN 56001.
