Contribute to the event via the MN PCR program

Through the Minnesota Political Contribution Refund program, you can donate to your DFL Senate District (https://secure.actblue.com/donate/sd43dfl) – $75/adult or $150/couple – and get the entire amount refunded back to you within weeks. After you donate, we’ll send you a receipt and PCR form, which you mail to the state for your refund.

Why should I do this?

Your contributions through the PCR program help to support the local DFL and our activities in your community (Senate District 43 – Golden Valley, Robbinsdale, New Hope, Crystal and a sliver of Plymouth) and state. Caucuses, convention, Golden Valley Pride, fundraisers, supporting DFL candidates and more.

This is a no-cost contribution because you get your entire contribution back.

Spring 2023 Plant Sale

Plants nourish and are credited with positive effects on physical and mental health. Kind of like the DFL — being part of it is good for your health and our environment.

What’s the connection?

DFL Senate District 43, the local organizing unit for Golden Valley, Robbinsdale, New Hope, Crystal and part of Plymouth, is having a plant & flower fundraiser. Profits build our war chest to get Democrats elected in our district and across Minnesota. Your plant flower purchases will help achieve that goal.

How does it work?

We hope you’ll support our common goal — electing Democrats— by ordering your plants & flowers from our sale. Spread the word — it’s open to everyone! They make great Mother’s Day and teacher gifts.

We’re providing an extra level of service to help you get your plant order — delivery of your order by one of our volunteers for a separate goodwill donation to Senate District 43 via ActBlue. Please email us if you’d like delivery.
