Galesburg Community Foundation

About the Galesburg Community Foundation

The Galesburg Community Foundation was established in 2012 to promote charitable work in Galesburg, North Dakota. It provides a method of receiving donations and distributing grants to benefit projects or nonprofit organizations in Galesburg. 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 Galesburg Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually. 

The Galesburg Community Foundation has held several successful Ice Cream Socials to introduce the fund to residents and raise money to grow the fund.

2nd Annual Galesburg Area Foundation Fall Feast set for August 26, 2016!

The Galesburg Area Foundation Advisory Committee will host the 2nd Annual dinner to help raise money for the community's endowment fund.

The evening will include a wine social, Pork Loin Dinner, silent auction and "Lucky Duck Plucks" (you have to attend to find out what this is!).  Tickets are $50/person with the event held at the Galesburg Memorial Hall.

  "All proceeds will stay in Galesburg forever."

Last year's gathering raised a little over $7,200 for the community's permanent endowment fund.  This year, the Advisory Committee members have a goal to beat that total! 

Tickets are available from any Advisory Committee member or at Dakota Heritage Bank in Galesburg.
