About the Anamoose Area Community Foundation

Celebrating the success of the Anamoose Area Community Foundation with a thermometer sign on Main Street.

The Anamoose Area Community Foundation was established in 2008 by a group of residents concerned about the lack of funding for local organizations. It provides a method of receiving donations and distributing grants to benefit projects or nonprofit organizations in the Anamoose area. The Foundation is affiliated with the North Dakota Community Foundation, which is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation under IRS code 501(c)(3) and North Dakota Law.

The Anamoose Area Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.

Upcoming Events

Cash Raffle to Support Anamoose Area Community Foundation

Each year, the Advisory Committee sets a goal to raise $10,000 for the permanent endowment fund, so that each year we can award more grant funds to local groups. In 2017, we will send a letter to all previous donors, as well as Anamoose residents and business owners, to let them know about the great projects that have been funded in the past and to ask for a gift towards our 2017 goal. In addition, we have have our annual Cash Raffle on December 3. Contact any Advisory Committee member to purchase your ticket for just $10 and the chance to win up to $550.
