Respected Fundraising Professional

In honor of NMF's upcoming 30th anniversary and National Philanthropy Month, we want to celebrate the contributions of our donors! We will be highlighting a donor a day for the month of November.

Please be sure to check the blog often to read about the wonderful stories of giving back to the northwest region. 

If you are interested in making a difference through the services of our community foundation, our development officers would be happy to assist you. Please contact Caryl Turnow or Lisa Peterson at 218-759-2057 to learn more.

Another honoree recognized at the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Northern Plains Chapter's annual celebration was Ginny Kruger. 

Ginny Kruger and Sue Grafstrom

Ginny began her development career more than 25 years ago when administering a grant for the North Valley Health Center in Warren, Minnesota. She designed and instituted a development program for the Health Center which has resulted in the building of a 14 million dollar new facility in 2013.

"Ginny has single-handedly been the reason a small critical-access hospital remained open for the people of western Marshall County," said nominator Sue Grafstrom. "She has not only maintained its presence in the community, but oversaw the successful campaign to raise funds to build a new hospital a few years ago. 

Grafstrom added, "She truly exemplifies the essence of this award."
