Thank you for helping us Raise the Roof!

We are so thankful for your participation in this year’s Raise the Roof Gala. We are pleased to announce exciting entertainment, a new location (the Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center), a full-sized gala planning committee and much more.

To get us started, we wanted to present the information below regarding Missouri Tax Credits. We invite you to share this with your fellow colleagues in Missouri who might benefit from tax credits or speak with John Wiley and Timmy Hensel about personal sponsorship outreach to people in your network to whom you’d recommend. (This document is available to email to your contacts. Just let Megan Neher know you need a copy.)

Thanks again for being a part of the team. Stay tuned for additional information from the committee.
