Thursday, the Crookston Area Community Fund balance grew by $10,000, with a $7,500 donation from RiverView Health and a $2,500 donation from Bremer Bank.
Both donations will be fully matched by the Otter Bremer Foundation, in addition to another 10 percent from the Northwest Minnesota Foundation, which hosts the CACF.
The balance continues to grow toward the $50,000 inaugural endowment goal that must be reached by summer.
Soon, the CACF Advisory Committee will announce its latest round of community development grants.
Meanwhile, donations large or small are welcome. Contact Allan Dragseth, Dave Genereux, Tom Jorgens, Angel Hoeffner, Bill Anderson, Jim Snyder, Dale Knotek, Dennis Koch, Betty Arvidson, Andrew Svec or Laurie Wilson for information on how to contribute.
