Gifts to the community foundation are worth more in March

MINNEAPOLIS, Kan.— Ottawa County Community Foundation could earn additional dollars for charitable grants in the community through a county-wide Match Month gift matching campaign.

In March, the Dane G. Hansen Foundation will match all public gifts to the Ottawa County Impact Fund at the Ottawa County Community Foundation, up to $50,000. The Ottawa County Impact Fund is an unrestricted community grant fund that supports projects and programs focused on improving quality of life in Ottawa County. New this year, the Hansen Foundation will also increase the additional match – up to $45,000 for a permanent operating endowment and up to $5,000 for immediate administrative needs. That means that community foundations that raise the full $50,000 for the permanent grant fund will receive a 200% match!

Join the Ottawa County Community Foundation on Saturday, March 4th, 2023 to kickoff their month of giving. The event will be held from 7pm-9pm at the Farm in Minneapolis, KS. Visit the Ottawa County Community Foundation Facebook page for all event details and to RSVP for the event.

All donations are tax-deductible. Gifts can be mailed to Ottawa County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 203, Minneapolis, KS 67467. Donations must be received by March 31. For online donations head over to
