The Foundation

The New Richmond Area Community Foundation is the place where you come to build the com­munity you long for. The Foundation has been providing citizens the opportunity to improve the area’s quality of life through on-going, commu­nity building efforts for over 35 years. Since its inception in 1980, the Foundation’s efforts and contributions have been directed to communi­ty-building activities. By collaborating with us, you will sustain a legacy of community caring and sharing that dates back to the Cyclone of 1899.

The fruits of the Foun­dation’s efforts can be found in many places in New Richmond and sur­rounding communities:

  • Leadership training
  • Community enhancement projects
  • Grace Place
  • Fives Loaves Food Shelf
  • The recreational trail system
  • Youth and family programs
  • Health and wellness activities
  • Support of school district initiatives

We believe that being engaged in giving back to one’s community is an essential component of local citizenship. This belief is represented in the core values of the foundation: philanthropy, leadership, collaboration and resource management. The Foundation is made up of your friends, colleagues and neighbors. Our community foundation is a public entity created by and for the people of the New Richmond area. We enable individuals to effectively support causes they care about through both financial and non-financial contributions. As we engage in service-based philanthropy, we are committed to cultivating the dreams of our citi­zens, nurturing the possibilities for our communities, and facilitating the leadership and developing the resources necessary to bring these dreams and possibilities into reality.
