Norton County Community Foundation Raises Nearly $167,000 in MyFoundation Campaign

Norton, Kansas, December 2020 – Norton County Community Foundation (NCCF) raised nearly $167,000 during the 5th Annual MyFoundation Campaign. This month-long matching gift campaign is primarily designed to encourage giving to NCCF’s Grant Endowment fund.

To incentivize giving, the Dane G. Hansen Foundation committed matching dollars for the following:

  • Grant Endowment Match: $50,000
  • Operating Fund “Bonus” Match: $25,000

After raising nearly $92,000 from donors, NCCF received the full $75,000 matching gift from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, raising a total of $167,000. Dollars raised will be invested into the foundation’s endowment funds, making funds available to award grants to support Norton County nonprofits, projects, and programs, and to provide capacity for the organization.

This year’s campaign brings the 5-year total to over $725,000. “This community continually rises to the challenge and exceeds our expectations,” said Tara Vance, NCCF Executive Director. “The MyFoundation Campaign is primarily about securing the future of our grant endowment fund. We’re so grateful to our community of supporters for sharing our vision and believing in the power of grant-making.”
