Harvey Area Community Foundation

About the Harvey Area Community Foundation

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