MMDC fundraising with Food Perspectives

food perspectives

The Mendota Dakota Tribe has been fundraising with Food Perspectives for about 5 years.

They are now doing everything online, and it is much easier to do. If you are interested, go to their website and sign on under Mendota Mdewakanton Dakota Community. When you do a test, part goes to Mendota. So if you made $35.00, $10.00 goes to Mendota. So far we have about 10 people in the community and outside of the community that do this. You can earn some money and the community gets a little too. It is fun to do, and only take less then an hour for most.

Your tribal council & Sharon

Dear FPI Organization Contact:

Thank you for your dedication to your nonprofit organization and for your interest in Food Perspectives.  We are writing you today to inform you that there are great fundraising opportunities ahead.  We have an extremely heavy testing schedule in the next few weeks and wanted you to know there will be plenty of testing opportunities ahead.  Every time one of your members participates in a taste test, $10 goes to your organization!

Please be sure all testing members of your organization are checking their emails and/or going to our website to check for possible testing opportunities.  The more folks who test, the more money raised for your organization!

Need to teach them how to check for available tests?  Here’s how:

  • Go to www.fpitesters.com
  • Click on the Tester Info tab.
  • Click on Login.
  • Enter your PID and PIN.   Don’t know your PID or PIN?  Click on the link on the bottom of the screen and we’ll email it to you, or call 763-354-2776 to get this info.
  • Once logged in, click on Available Tests on the left column.
  • Click on the survey you are interested in.
  • That’s it!  It’s easy!

If you would like a personalized flyer to distribute to your organization members, please simply reply to this email, remember to include your organization name, and we’ll email you a flyer to distribute to your group.

Holiday Party was very successful!

There was about 60 people at the party, lots of food, and a good time, considering the weather. The Mendota member’s and friends would like to say (PIDAMAYA)  THANK YOU to Cherokee Park Church for letting us have our party at their wonderful church.
