Please mark your calendars!
All Aboard Ohio’s largest fundraiser is coming up — lasting 26 hours starting at 10 a.m. on Oct. 10 and continuing to 12 noon on Oct. 11. Donate during that time to All Aboard Ohio through the Columbus Foundation and the foundation will match your generosity with its own donations to All Aboard Ohio! See details below or go to ColumbusFoundation.org.
With the Federal Railroad Administration’s Midwest Regional Rail System plan showing promising data for multiple Ohio routes (see the next newsletter, due in the mail by mid-October), we’ll need your help to make sure Ohio’s local, regional, state, federal and business leaders are aware of what’s in this terrific report, due out at the end of the year. We also need resources to make sure Ohio’s gubernatorial candidates know how important trains and transit are to Ohio’s future. That takes money so our dedicated staff and volunteers can reach out to educate and activate our leaders.
That’s where The Big Give comes in — by amplifying your generosity!
