These are the amazing organizations that have generously donated to ensure wellness and promote the empowerment of New Americans in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
FM Area Foundation
The Women’s Fund, an endowed fund of the FM Area Foundation, gives grant dollars in our community within three focus areas: women in leadership, children in need of care, and the economic well-being of women and their families. We received funding for our Women’s Empowerment Program to allow us to build leadership teams in 5 neighborhoods in Fargo, West Fargo, and Moorhead.
The Consensus Council
The Consensus Council, in partnership with the Bush Foundation, provides Community Innovation grants to non-profit organizations and units of government in North Dakota who are using problem-solving processes that lead to more effective, equitable and sustainable solutions. Our grant from the Consensus Council allows us to promote leadership development and aid in building the capacity of our Board of Directors.
Otto Bremer Trust
The Otto Bremer Trust gives grants to support work that is important to the communities that are home to Bremer banks. With these grants, the Otto Bremer Trust strives to help build healthy, vibrant communities where basic needs are met, mutual regard is prized, and opportunities for economic, civic, and social participation are within everyone’s reach.
City of Fargo
We received a grant from the City of Fargo to allow us to provide services to newcomers to the community and help them integrate. This grant also helped us to develop Welcoming Week for the F/M Area in coordination with other organizations in the community.
We have a contract with Cass County Social Services to help provide a variety of services for their clients. We receive referrals from Social Services, Fargo Police Department, Fargo Public Schools, and community members.
Through Clay County Public Health, the PartnerSHIP 4 Health: Reducing Health Disparities following the Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative (EHDI) is made possible. EHDI is a targeted effort to start narrowing the health disparities gap by providing culturally appropriate programs to communities most impacted by health disparities. Under this initiative we work primarily with African/African Americans in Moorhead and Pelican Rapids with a primary focus on reducing the risk factors that lead to diabetes and heart disease & stroke.
The Barry Foundation
Philanthropy and Youth (PaY) is a program of The Barry Foundation. It is designed to introduce local high school students to the importance of leadership, service, philanthropy, the nonprofit sector, and community development. We were awarded funds from Central Cass, Fargo South, and Shanley high schools to aid with technology costs, informational pamphlets and outreach materials, and summer art programs for the Consortium.
