Anamoose Area Community Foundation

Make a gift today and make a difference forever in Anamoose!

Please consider gifting a portion of your harvest this year to the Anamoose Area Community Foundation. It’s an easy way to support our area’s permanent fund without having to open your checkbook. Plus, you don’t have to claim the income from the sale, and you can still deduct the cost of production for whatever you donate!

Simply fill out the donation card, and give it to your broker, co-op, or elevator. They will take care of the rest, and you will have made a difference, forever, in our community!

For more detailed information about gifting commodities, please read this article written by a retired CPA, farmer, and NDCF Board Member. 

If you have questions, please contact Kara Geiger with the North Dakota Community Foundation at 701-222-8349.

Thank you from all of us on the Advisory Committee!

About the Anamoose Area Community Foundation

Celebrating the success of the Anamoose Area Community Foundation with a thermometer sign on Main Street.

The Anamoose Area Community Foundation was established in 2008 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 the Anamoose 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 Anamoose Area Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
