The McKenzie County Community Foundation gave out $3,800 in grants in December 2017. Recipients were: Save the Maah Daah Hey, Pioneer Museum/McKenzie County, Summit Counseling and Long X Arts Foundation. These grants were made possible with key gifts from area donors.

Grant requests totaled $13,300 on $78,100 of county-wide projects. "We wish we could have done more for the many wonderful projects that were submitted," says Marcia Hellandsaas, MCCF committee chair,"but we are working to grow the endowment for our community, so in future years, we can become a bigger responder to area service needs that improve our quality of life."
