Your support matters

Make a Donation

You can help secure our legacy and provide for the future of our communities by donating your time, talent or financial resources. Contributions can be made in a variety of ways and can be designated for specific funds of the general endowment fund. Proceeds are invested back into the communities through grants to organizations, businesses and individuals whose proposals align with the goals of the foundation and will make a measurable difference in our communities.

 In partnership with the Greater Pequot Lakes Community Foundation, the Initiative Foundation oversees and manages financial contributions to the fund. The Foundation also provides staff support to the advisory board and ensures compliance with legal and professional standards. These services allow volunteer leaders to focus on the needs of the community and enhancing quality of life. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, contributions to the fund are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Discuss the possibilities with your financial advisor or attorney. For more information about the types of gifts accepted or the impact you can make, please contact Advisory Board Member, Nancy Malecha at 218-568-2352 or

When you give to the Pequot Lakes Community Foundation endowment fund, your gift establishes an enduring legacy that will benefit the people of the Greater Pequot Lakes area for years to come. We accept credit card donations through our online portal. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated!
