At the recent meeting of the Midcontinent Media Foundation, the board of directors approved $62,583 in grants to regional non-profit organizations.
The Midcontinent Media Foundation is the charitable arm of the Midcontinent family of companies. For over 20 years the Foundation has provided support for 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations in the communities served by Midcontinent Media, Inc. and its affiliates.
Midcontinent grants have provided nearly $3,000,000 for over 1,400 community projects and organizations in the Dakotas and Minnesota.
�Our Foundation grants are just one example of Midcontinent�s commitment to our communities and the customers we serve,� said Senior Vice President of Public Policy Tom Simmons. �Our employees are also encouraged to volunteer within their communities and they have served thousands and thousands of hours over the years supporting these kinds of organizations and causes that are close to their hearts.�
The Foundation reviews all grants in March and September of each year. The next deadline for applications is July 10. Non-profit community organizations that qualify are encouraged to review the online application and apply for future grants.
