About the Williston Area Community Foundation

The Williston Area Community Foundation was established in 2014. It provides a method of receiving donations and distributing grants to benefit projects or nonprofit organizations in the Williston 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 Williston Area Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.
