Half A Million dollars distributed by St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation to area organizations
St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation distributed checks totaling $557,660.37 to 42 area agencies on January 31, 2019. The agencies participated in the second annual Twice Blessed matching gift program, held November 15 – December 31, 2018. Twice Blessed is a local matching gift program created and hosted by St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation to double gifts given to prequalified agencies. Gifts and the matching grant funds are available for projects that address the mental, physical, emotional and/or spiritual needs of residents in the counties of Bottineau, Burke, McHenry, McLean, Mountrail, Pierce, Renville, Rolette, Sheridan, Ward and Wells.
Contributors could visit one website -twiceblessednd.com- to learn about the mission and goals of each of the area organizations participating in the program. They could donate through the website or by sending contributions directly to the Foundation or to the participating organizations. No gift was too small, and gifts were matched accordingly, with 4 different levels up to a grand match total of $250,000 provided by St. Joseph’s Community Health Foundation.
