Norton County Community Foundation (NCCF) raised $145,000 during the 4th Annual MyFoundation Campaign. This month-long matching gift campaign is designed to encourage giving to NCCF’s Grant Endowment fund. Matching funds are provided by the Dane G. Hansen Fund.
Funds raised during the campaign go toward NCCF’s grant-making capabilities and help ensure that its ability to support charitable efforts, economic impact projects, and community improvements will continue in perpetuity. To encourage giving, the Dane G. Hansen Foundation committed matching dollars for the following:
Grant Endowment Match: $50,000
Operating Fund “Bonus” Match: $25,000
After raising $70,000 from donors, NCCF received the full $75,000 matching gift from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, raising a total of $145,000. All dollars raised will be invested into the foundation’s grant endowment fund that is used to make grants of all types to support Norton County nonprofits, projects, and programs.
This year’s campaign brings the total amount of funds raised during the 4 years of the MyFoundation Campaign to over $558,000. “This community continually rises to the challenge and exceeds our expectations," said Tara Vance, NCCF Executive Director. “The MyFoundation Campaign is all about securing the future of our grant endowment fund. We’re so grateful to our community of supporters for sharing our vision and believing in the power of grant-making.”
