100 Men Met their Goal


The first Faribault Foundation 100 Men who Give a Damn event met their goal of raising $10,000! The fun process includes each man nominating their favorite cause, choosing three from all the nominations at random, then voting on which will get the donation.

Faribault Foundation, the host organization retains half the donations and the top vote getter receives the rest.


The random drawing selection was:

  • The Chamber Trust

  • IRIS

  • Faribault Foundation Endowment

THEN THERE WAS A TIE between IRIS and the Faribault Foundation Endowment! So in true democratic fashion they discussed what to do and agreed unanimously to split it! So both IRIS and The Faribault Foundation Endowment receive $2500.00 !
