The North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF) has established the Ellendale Flood Relief Fund to assist individuals affected by the July 19th flooding event in Ellendale, ND.  A severe storm dumped 7.5 inches of rain in 5-6 hours, overwhelming the city's sewer system and causing damage to homes, businesses, and churches.

Individuals and businesses that would like to donate to the fund can donate online by clicking on the Donate tab at the left, or mail your check made out to "North Dakota Community Foundation" with "Ellendale Flood Relief Fund" in the memo line to:

North Dakota Community Foundation
PO BOX 387
Bismarck, ND 58502

All gifts to the Ellendale Flood Relief Fund are tax-deductible as charitable contributions. NDCF will waive its usual management fees so 100% of gifts will go to the disaster response (online credit card donation fees still apply).  You will receive a tax receipt from NDCF for your gift.

Funds will be granted to the Lutheran Social Services Unmet Needs Committee, which provides direct assistance to individuals and is providing case management services to victims of the storm.

Questions about making a donation should be directed to the NDCF main office at 701-222-8349.

Thank you for your concern for our fellow North Dakotans!
