About Us

The Sheyenne Valley Community Foundation was established to receive, manage and distribute gifts made to the Foundation for charitable purposes. We connect donors with causes they care about and serve as a catalyst for community change. We are dedicated to the improvement and long term viability of the Sheyenne River Valley Area, including Barnes, Griggs, and Ransom Counties. We welcome you to join in our efforts.

We are a critical partner in identifying needs and being a resource for solutions. We are able to have the pulse on emerging and ongoing needs which allows us to create a synergistic link between donors, nonprofits and the community.
Donors like Charlotte Van Houten Estate, Lilian Jacobson Estate and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph and Jane Winge, who gave to the Barnes Co Historical Society Endowment Fund have made a difference in their community and provided a gift that lasts forever. They are helping to meet the needs of the museum today and for years to come.
