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.
We give a heartfelt thanks to the Sheyenne Valley Community Foundation for the grant opportunity. Without the funding we received we would not have been able to make this outdoor learning experience a reality.Nicole Powers, teacher at Jefferson Elementary
