Emerado Community Endowment Fund

About the Emerado Community Endowment Fund

The Emerado Community Endowment Fund was established in 2014 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 Emerado 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 Emerado Community Endowment Fund is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and, eventually, recommending grants from the fund's earnings.
