Our Deer River community is a special place with hard-working families who support each other. We value the special beauty of our lakes, rivers, and forests, and many in our area make their living from them.  This is “home” for us.

Annual earnings from our invested endowment will be available to fund local nonprofit and charitable needs for the benefit of our community.  The Deer River Area Community Fund Advisory Committee works together to provide grants for programs and activities throughout the communities served by the Deer River School District.

Please consider a gift to support the Deer River Area Community Fund.  Our children and their grandchildren will benefit from your generosity for years to come. We are happy to answer your questions about the benefits of a community endowment. Thank you for your gift to our Community!

Support Your Community

As a donor, you select the type of fund that best matches your charitable goals. You can either provide a gift to an existing fund or you can establish a new fund to help you achieve your philanthropic goals and to leave a personal legacy.
