This fund builds on our commitment to support the communities in northwest North Dakota where we work and live,” said Kent Evans, Statoil’s Bakken Regional Manager. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the board and staff of NWND Community Foundation, and to access their valuable expertise and guidance as we continue to invest charitable resources in Williams, McKenzie, and Mountrail counties.”
