The North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF) has established the McKenzie County Flood Relief 2019 Fund to assist individuals affected by the spring flooding event in McKenzie County.  The Yellowstone River flooded over 14,000 acres of land, damaging 29 homes and displacing 110 residents.  Most homeowners did not have flood insurance, as the area had never before experienced flooding.

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 "McKenzie County Flood Relief 2019" in the memo line to:

North Dakota Community Foundation
PO BOX 387
Bismarck, ND 58502

All gifts to the McKenzie County Flood Relief 2019 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 flood event

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!
