About the Minnewaukan Community Endowment Fund

The Minnewaukan Community Endowment Fund was established in 1981 to make grants for community projects in the Minnewaukan 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 Minnewaukan Community Endowment Fund is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
