Help start a Twin Cities chapter of Common Ground USA, a nation-wide 501c3 group advocating "value capture" in public finance. To start a local chapter, 5 MN residents would need to pay the $36 annual Common Ground USA dues, but the chapter then is entitled to a $12/per member rebate. Chapters also get funding for start-up costs and $50 each year for holding an annual meeting. If you are interested in learning more, contact Rich Nymoen at RNymoen [at] aol.com.
[I did not even know there was an advocacy group for value capture, which sounds great.]
