Money For Your Non-Profit! March 5 and 6 In Fargo and Moorhead

Minnesota and North Dakota Grant Opportunities Through Partnerships with Community Innovation Grants Funded by the Bush Foundation


meetingCommunity Information sessions will be held in Fargo, ND and Moorhead MN on March 5 and 6.  These sessions will inform local groups, non-profits and local government entities about the Bush Foundation Community Investment grants that are available to ND and MN groups.

Community Innovation Grants support communities to use problem-solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable and sustainable solutions. We think of this as civic research and development, allowing communities to develop and test new solutions to community challenges. Grants range from $500 – $10,000.

These Sessions are free and Open to the public.  Refreshments will also be served.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not forget! If you are signed up to attend one of these funding meetings either in ND or MN, make sure you are ALSO signed up for the PRE-event (linked at the end of this paragraph) on Thursday from 1-2:30pm at the Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center to hear the findings of the “Changing Demographics” report. Understanding the findings in the report will be crucial to understanding what the funders are looking for and will give potential grant applicants a better chance of being awarded. To RSVP to the Pre-event, join here:
