'I realize it's not always easy or even possible for people to get to my office in Grand Forks," said Cramer. "The use of mobile office hours is an effort to bring services to con- stituents." For help regarding issues with the VA, Social Security benefits or dis- abilities, Medicare billing prob- lems, immigration issues, military records or medals, or for assistance with any federal agency, constituents can stop by one of the following Mo- bile Office Hours: Thursday, November 19 Park River Public School and Library 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM 605 6th St W Park River Cavalier Public Library 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM 200 Bjornson Drive Cavalier Contact Congressman Cramer's District Representative Randy Richards with any questions.

For more than 25 years, the effort has raised awareness about the increasingly important role of these philanthropic organizations in fostering local collaboration and iunovation to address persistent civic and economic challenges. NDCF currently administers community endowment funds for over 60 community foundations in North Dakota, including the most recent ad- ditions in 2015: the Adams County Community Foundation in southwest North Dakota and the Dale L & Russell F Brown Memorial Funds, ben- efitting the communities of Lisbon and Milnor in the southeast part of the state. Community foundations at NDCF in this area include the Grafton Community Endowment Fund, the Drayton Area Community Foundation, and the Park River Community Endowment Fund, established in 1983. The Park River Community Endowment Fund has awarded over $172,000 in grants since its inception to a variety of organizations including the Park River School District for elementary school playground equipment, the Park River Public Library for iPads, the Kiddie Komer Preschool and Day- care for furniture, equipment, and technology upgrades, the Park River Vol- unteer Fire Department for a set of Jaws of Life, the Park River Community Theatre for various projects, the First Care Health Center for medical equip- ment, and the Park River Happy Hour Senior Citizens Club for building updates and repairs. "Community foundations pmvide, xesources to address the changing needs the Little Raiders Daycare for a building addition.

Community foundations represent one of the thstest-growing forms of: philanthropy. Every state in the United States is home to at least one com- munity foundation--large and small, urban and rural--working to advance solutions on a wide range of social issues. For community foundations at NDCF, each fund has an advisory committee made up of local residents that recommend grant awards to the projects and programs they believe will make the most significant impact in their area. The State of North Dakota encourages donors to direct their philanthropic dollars toward endowment funds such as the COlranunity foundations at NDCF through a 40% State Tax Credit passed in 2011. "That is a huge benefit to donors," said Dvorak. "A gift of $5,000 to philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of s~ong, vibrant communities. NDCF expects to grant out over $3.5 million in 2015 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 of2015 grants include: A $3,000 grant from the Anamoose Area Community Foundation to of a community.," said.Kevin Dvo~ President and CEO of NDCE "They a community's endowment fund may actually have an out-of-pocket cost are+beeomingmereasmg|y im~t:as ourrura! communities face ava- to the donor of only $1,600 depending on their federal tax bracket.
