Help Us Grow Our Fund!


For Agricultural Producers:

The Hankinson Community Endowment Fund Advisory Committee is asking Agricultural Producers in and near Hankinson to consider gifting a portion of their harvest to the fund this year, to help establish the endowment fund. 

Gifting a portion of your harvest is an easy way to provide support 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 print and fill out one of the donation cards below 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.

Thank you from all of us who are working to build a better Hankinson!
