About the Walhalla Area Community Foundation

Give a gift with real meaning this holiday season - make a donation in honor of a loved one and support the Walhalla area forever!

The Walhalla Area Community Foundation was established in 2009 by a group of community leaders to build endowment and support projects that enhance the quality of life for the citizens of the Walhalla, ND 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 Walhalla Area Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
