Money For Your Dreams Of A Better Grand Forks

Posted: Updated:

Do you have an idea to make your Community a better place to live and work? Well, the "Community Foundation" of Greater Grand Forks now has the financial backing to turn dreams into reality.

  The Community Foundation is already working on plans for several projects, including a boat house, with kayak adventures on the Red River.

  Plus, they're looking for ideas to help homeless women and children. They're also looking for ideas on how to help middle school aged girls cope with drugs, pregnancy and bullying.

Kristi Mishler, Community Foundation: "To help create some sort of systems change. Make things better for girls and women."

  Other projects already in the planning stages include a veteran's park and 42nd street art corridor.

  The idea behind all this is to make Greater Grand Forks and the surrounding region a fun and engaging place for everyone to live. If you have an idea the Community Foundation has the resources to make our idea a reality.

  In fact, the Community Foundation has 180-thousand dollars in grant money available to help turn your idea into action.

Kristi Mishler, Community Foundation: "Anybody's who's interested can apply for a grant to support a project… or an organization that's already working on some areas that we're talking about. Go to the web site at GoFoundation.org .and check out the grants."

  Now, you have the opportunity to do much more than just talk about how to make the Community a better place, there are funds available to make it happen.
