The Adams County Community Foundation (ACCF) was established 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 Adams County. The ACCF is a component fund of the North Dakota Community Foundation, which is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation under IRS code 501(c)(3) and North Dakota Law.
TWO FUNDS: Committee work is supported by two fund to which donors can give and help us in our mission to serve the community.
ENDOWMENT: Is the primary fund, and Qualifies for 40% ND Tax Credit. (click on link for requirements) Roughly 4% of funds are put to work in the community used annually as "grants".
Non-Endowment PROJECT Fund: Provides immediate granting, and funds for marketing launching events. Qualifies as a charitable gift if no benefit is given in return, but NOT for 40% ND income tax credit.
NDCF is the support system for ACCF with over 40 years providing comprehensive charitable services to ND. This includes donor gift planning, bequest planning, and fiduciary services such as accounting, audit and money management to and for individuals, company leaders, families, and non-profits. This allows local volunteer committees to focus on telling their story of their foundation impact through marketing, granting, and growing the fund.
