The Chisholm Community Foundation ensures that all donations go directly into community projects. All operating expenses of the CCF come from corporate partnerships and fundraisers. The CCF only spends the interest and dividend income earned on its trust. That interest can be invested back into the community for a variety of projects that will help make Chisholm a better place to live.
The St. Paul and Minnesota Foundation provide the CCF with investment management services, administrative support, and our 501(c)3 status. The Foundations also work with CCF donors who are interested in setting up planned gifts or named funds.
Local control of the CCF is in the hands of a ten-member board of committed individuals who contribute many volunteer hours of their time and talent toward fundraising and managing the CCF’s investments.
