MUNITY THEWALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2016 Page 5 BISMARCK, N.D. -- During the week of November 12-18, 2016, the North Dakota Community Foun- dation (NDCF) will join more than 780 community foundations across America celebrating Community Foundation Week. For more than 25 years, the effort has raised awareness about the increasingly important role of these philanthropic organi- zations in fostering local collabora- tion and innovation to address per- sistent civic and economic chal- lenges. NDCF currently administers community endowment funds for 63 community foundations in North Dakota, including the most recent additions in 2016: the Dickinson Area Community Foundation in western North Dakota and the Wishek Area Community Founda- tion in south central North Dakota. Community foundations at NDCF in this part of the state include ,: The Grafton Community En- dowment Fund, established in 1981 The Park River Area Commu- nity Endowment Fund, established in 1983 The Drayton Area Community Foundation, established in 2005 The Cavalier Co|nmunity Foun- dation, established in 2005 The Larry J. Wflwant Fund for Pembina, ND, established in 2007 The Walhalla Area Communi- ty Fotmdation, established in 2009 "Community foundations are like having a charitable savings ac- count for your area," said Kevin Dvorak, President and CEO of NDCE "Whatever the needs are in your community in any given year, your local community fotmdation will have resources available to ad- dress those needs." Community foundations are in- dependent, public entities that stew- ard philanthropic resources from in- stitutional and individual donors to local nonprofitS that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. NDCF expects to grant out over $3 million in 2016 through its various funds. These grants are used in a variety of ways to improve the quality of life for North Dakota residents. Some examples of 2016 grants include: A $15,000 grant from the Clarence Johnson and Eunice iwen Community Foundation for Arthur, ND for payment on a new fire track A$1,500 grant from the Car- rington Community Endowment Fund to the Carrington City Library for the summer reading program and summer help A $1,308.75 grant from the Glen Ullin Community Foundation to the Glen Ullin Senior Club for their dining room floor renovation A $20,000 g ant from the Minot Colmnunity Endowment Fund to the Children's Museum of Minot, Inc. for exhibit space A $226 grant from the New Rockford Community Foundation to the Community Ambulance Service for a Community CPR/First Aid Progam A $3,400 grant from the Stanley Area Community Foundation to the Stanley High School Band to help with costs of new band uniforms "The grants vary, depending on what the local advisory committee feels is most important to their com- munity at that time," said Dvorak. Colnmunity foundations repre- sent one of the fastest-growing lbrms of philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one community foundation-- large and small, urban and rural-- working to advance solutions on a wide range of social issues. For com- munity foundations at NDCF, each fund has an advisory committee made up of local residents that rec- ommend grant awards to the proj- ects and programs they believe will make the most significant impact in their area. The State of North Dakota en- courages donors to direct their phil- anthropic dollars toward endowment funds such as the community foun- dations at NDCF through a 40% State Tax Credit passed in 2011. "That is a huge benefit to donors," said Dvorak. "'A girl of $5,000 to a community's endow- ment fund may actually have an out- of-pocket cost to the donor of only $1,600 depending on their federal tax bracket. We certainly encourage people to look at their hometown community foundation as they plan their charitable giving for the year." Community Foundation Week, created in 1989 by former president George H.W. Bush, recognizes the work of community foundations throughout America and their col- laborative approach to working with the public, private, and non- profit sectors to ad&ess communi- ty problems.
