National Philanthropy Day: Funds of the Northwest Minnesota Foundation Making a Difference


Bemidji, MN – November 16, 2015 – The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) founded National Philanthropy Day in 1982. The purpose is to acknowledge the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognize the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society. National Philanthropy Day will be celebrated this year on November 19th.

There are dozens of nonprofit organizations in the Northwest Minnesota Foundation’s service area that employ hundreds of staff members. These organizations’ donors and volunteers are committed to making a difference every single year…both in our region and throughout the world.

Philanthropy Day gives us a chance to honor those donors, volunteers and staff who are working to promote charitable giving. Sincere gratitude is extended to the foundation’s community and component funds, their advisory committee members, and each of the generous donors. Working together, they are enhancing the quality of place in their respective towns and cities.

One of the best ways to continue supporting these organizations is through a bequest in your will. Having a will is important for more than just distributing assets upon your death! A will represents your last opportunity to meet charitable goals, reinforce your values, and help make a difference in the lives of family members and your community. Contact your financial planner, attorney, or call NMF staff at 218-759-2057 for more information about bequests and other planned gifts.

Without all of those involved with a nonprofit, foundation or fundraising, our communities and our world would be lacking many of the extras and support needed for having quality places in which to live and work.

The Northwest Minnesota Foundation is a public, charitable foundation serving 12 counties of Northwest Minnesota by investing resources, facilitating collaboration and promoting philanthropy.
