Hurdsfield Community Foundation

Make a one-time or recurring gift to benefit Hurdsfield forever!

The Hurdsfield Community Foundation was established in 1992 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 Hurdsfield 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 Hurdsfield Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
