Grants and Improvements

The Monster Bash Inc board of directors wishes to thank the following foundations and organizations for their generous support of our charity in the form of grants.

2022

First Southeast Bank in Harmony, and Canton, painted the Monster Bash building in Harmony, MN. “We knew painting the building has been on their agenda for a while, so we felt this was something we could take off their plate as they prepare for their 10 th season next month!”, stated Samantha Koch, Assistant Vice President of Operations for First Southeast Bank. Koch went on to say,“This amazing charity has given back so much to the Fillmore Central arts programs, we wanted to help give back to them. Plus, we love attending the Monster Bash each year! It never disappoints!”

2021

In 2021, we received a $500 Grant from the Mi Energy Cooperative to do some additional improvements for our handicapped accessible bathrooms

2020

We received the following grants :

  • Anonymous Foundation : $10,000

  • Carl & Verna Schmidt Foundation: $12,000

We used the grants to replace the roof (pictured left) which was completed in the spring of 2021. The old roof had sprung quite a few leaks and was definitely in need of repair and new tin. Thanks to those grants, the leaks are gone!

2019 and 2020

We received the following grants :

  • COVID Relief (SMIF/Harmony Area Foundation) : $2500

  • COVID Relief (SMIF/City of Harmony) : $3750

These grants were life-savers for the Monster Bash organization. Because we didn't have a Haunt in 2020, we lost out on a lot of the funding we need to "keep the lights on". These grants helped tremendously to pay for our annual expenses.

2017

We received the following grants :

  • Anonymous Foundation : $10,000

  • Mi Energy Cooperative: $1000

We used the $10,000 grant money to finance : Electrical work, Safety Exit Signs, Entrance/Exit Concrete ramps and other building improvement projects.

The Mi Energy Grant was used to gut and rebuild the bathrooms so they could be handicap accessible

2016

We received the following grants :

  • Anonymous Foundation : $7,000

We used this money to finance: Electrical work, replacing windows, installing new siding and other building improvement projects.
