Foundation Makes Large Donation

Posted: Updated:

There have been substantial donations in the past, but today, the Minot Area Community Foundation hit a new high mark for dollars granted to a single project.

The banner says it all -- 460-thousand dollars for the Minot Domestic Violence Crisis Center.

Dozens gathered this morning at the center's new home in east Minot to recognize the gift, and tour what will be built with it.

That large sum is exactly what is needed to build a second four-plex next to the one that was just finished.

They will house women getting out of abusive relationships.

D-V-C-C director Dena Filler says when she got the call from foundation director Ken Kitzman...she was stunned.

(Dena Filler - DVCC Director) "And he said the Community Foundation was going to give a grant of 460K for the second four plex and I was just ecstatic. It is going to be so wonderful and will affect so many women and children that pass through those doors." (Ken Kitzman - MACF President) "It took a lot of people to pull this off today, and I know the community doesn't usually show pride in something like this but it is a need and today a big piece of it is going to be met."

The donation also marked a big milestone for the foundation -- surpassing the 10 million dollar mark in distributions for local projects.
