“The North Dakota Community Foundation is pleased to provide these resources to help make the organizations better and to make this part of North Dakota a better place to live”, said Mr. Dvorak.
Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. This year, the Foundation received over 110 grant requests and the Board of Directors was able to support 33 of those projects. This year, the NDCF and its component funds will make over $2 million in grants all across North Dakota.
“The grantees work to enhance the quality of life for our citizens. We are pleased that our North Dakota Community Foundation grants will allow these organizations to carry out their missions” said NDCF Board Member, Anne Riske.
The North Dakota Community Foundation was organized in 1976. The Foundation was formed as an efficient means of meeting the needs of North Dakota in the educational, charitable, arts, scientific and health areas. It is a public, non-profit tax-exempt corporation which receives and distributes charitable funds to support a wide range of programs which benefit North Dakotans. The Foundation administers charitable endowment and non-endowment funds in both the restricted and unrestricted categories on behalf of communities, businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals.
