MACF announces 3rd Annual Donation Station Challenge Grant

Posted: Sep 03 2019
The Minot Area Community Foundation (MACF) announces their 3rd Annual Donation Station Challenge Grant to benefit Minot food pantries. Area organizations are invited to utilize the Donation Station in the coming months to collect items and stock area food pantries for a chance to win additional grant dollars for one of the eligible Minot food pantries.
 
Participating organizations are asked to set a goal of collecting 1,000 pounds or more of food during a single collection drive for a designated food pantry. If successful, that organization’s designated food pantry will also receive a $500 grant from The MACF Arnold I. Besserud Fund.
 
This is the third year that MACF is offering the challenge grant. Last year, 11 organizations participated, collecting over 16,000 pounds of food. A total of $5,500 in grant money was distributed because of the challenge grant’s success.
 
This year’s challenge grant will run from September 1st – December 31st, 2019. Food collection events must take place within this time frame and The Donation Station must be utilized for the event. Eligible Minot food pantries include Our Lady of Grace, The Lord’s Cupboard and Salvation Army. Rural communities wanting to participate will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
 
The Donation Station is already booking up quickly! Please contact The Minot Area Community Foundation at 852-0646 to book the Donation Station for your upcoming event.
