About the Mott-Regent Community Foundation

Established  through the Ishmael & Rose Diede estate, the Mott-Regent Community Foundation is a permanent endowment fund that will support our community for years to come. Earnings from the fund are given as grants to support nonprofit projects or programs in the Mott-Regent area that work to improve our community and quality of life. 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 Mott-Regent Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually. 

HELPING US BUILD THE FUND: In order for the fund to have a bigger impact in the community, we invite those in the region to make some sort of a gift. Please refer to the "other information" tab for a report and brochure to find out more. Or please call one of us on the committee. We would be happy to answer any questions.

FUNDING: (click her to make online gifts) Committee work is supported by the fund(s) listed to which donors can give and help us in our mission to serve the community. 

ENDOWMENT: Is the primary fund, and Qualifies for 40% ND Tax Credit. (click on link for requirements) Roughly 4% of funds are put to work in the community used annually as "grants". 

Non-Endowment PROJECT Fund: Provides immediate granting, and funds for marketing launching events. Qualifies as a charitable gift if no benefit is given in return, but NOT for 40% ND income tax credit.

NDCF is the support system for ACCF with over 40 years providing comprehensive charitable services to ND. This includes donor gift planning and bequest planning for individuals, company leaders, families, and non-profits, and fiduciary services such as accounting, audit and money management. This allows local volunteer committees to focus on telling their story of their foundation impact through marketing, granting, and growing the fund.
