The McKenzie County Community Foundation gave out $8,400 in grants this month. Recipients were: Bio Girls Project, Long X Arts Foundation, Badlands Gymnastics Club, Lifeguard Training Equipment, Roughrider Center; Children’s Corner/Tator Tots and Bakken Oil Rush Ministries. These grants were made possible with key gifts from area donors.
Grant requests totaled $19,930 on $82,215 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.”
MCCF is a permanent endowment established on Oct. 14, 2010 to help improve the quality of life in McKenzie County. Each year earnings of the fund are awarded as grants to priority projects. MCCF is a component fund managed by the North Dakota Community Foundation who has served North Dakota communities for over 40 years and manages over 600 charitable funds from around the state.
Donations to the fund from local or out of state can be given as memorials, from estates, or outright gifts, and may qualify for the North Dakota State Income Tax credit of 40% if they are paying North Dakota income tax.
