Giving back to your community should be an enjoyable experience, and that’s why we make giving as easy as possible. We meet personally with donors to determine goals and create a fund that makes sense for you.
We are highly flexible in our ability to accept complex gifts and have seven types of funds to choose from. Any fund can be established in your name or the name of your family, organization, or anyone you wish to honor. All grants from the fund you establish – today and in the future – are awarded to charities in the name of that fund. It’s a great way to be involved with, and be remembered for, your community investment.
Let us know if you want to set up a charitable fund by filling out the form below. That is fine if you don’t have answers to all the questions! Fill out what you can, and we will be in touch, or feel free to contact our Director of Philanthropy, Lexi Oestreich, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 701.234.0756.
You have the power to make a positive impact in two ways. You can donate to one of our 500 existing funds, or you can contact us to create a charitable fund that matches your values. Whichever route you choose, we are humbled by your trust and grateful for your kindness and generosity.

This ripple of kindness is cultivating joy and shared connection in our community, just because, and only made possible through generous donors. What a beautiful gift to know your community cares about you!”
