Due to the success of the Get It Dunn 5K & Half Marathon, in 2013 we created a new giving initiative in M.O.M. Camperships. We give away $5000 (up to $500 per child) randomly to applicants aged kindergarten to 12th grade. These Camperships can be used for any summer camp, classes or program.

In 2012, we created M.O.M. Cares packages. We give these to families who are going through cancer treatment. M.O.M. understands the emotional and financial toll cancer has on all members of a family fighting cancer. Examples of special M.O.M. Cares gifts include camp registration, movie tickets, swimming lessons, a new bike, etc. Our goal is to help children still be kids when their family member is going through treatment. Funds raised in the Get It Dunn Run fund this program. Visit our website for more information. Please email us if you know of a family that M.O.M. could help support with a care package.
M.O.M. Higher Education National Scholarship was created in 2012, also due to the success of the Get It Dunn Run. We award up to a $1,500 scholarship paid at the conclusion of a higher education student’s semester, with proof of completion along with a GPA over 2.5. Any student enrolled in a post-secondary college or technical school is eligible to win. Winners are chosen by the M.O.M. board, via an essay contest. For more information on this scholarship and entry information, please visit our website or email us.
In 2008, the Kathleen Fisher Memorial Scholarship was established. M.O.M. annually awards this $2000 scholarship to a Menomonie High School graduate. Those graduating from Menomonie High School, and also MHS grads attending secondary school are eligible. This scholarship is awarded during the spring. Please email us or visit our website for more information.
M.O.M. also offers “Life Scholarships” to help serve less fortunate and deserving candidates in our communities. M.O.M. has given holiday gifts & clothing for winter weather, sponsored art workshops for children living in poverty, donations to Junior Achievement, The Bridge to Hope, the American Cancer Society among others.
In addition to all of the outreach described above, M.O.M. also participates in holiday giving, and responds to submitted requests and events where we feel it necessary, and within our scope, to give. For more information, please visit our website or email us.
