Grants of up to $5,000 to North Dakota nonprofit organizations, agencies, schools, park districts, and libraries for programs that address a wide range of community needs in Bismark, Mandan, and surrounding communities in Morton and Burleigh Counties. Funding is intended for a variety of interest areas. BisMan Community Foundation does not have a narrow area of focus. The Advisory Committee looks at each project on its merits. Emphasis is placed on helping applicants who have limited access to other sources of funding.

A low priority will be given to projects already substantially supported by government, or which, in the opinion of the Advisory Committee, can and should be provided for by taxes. Grants for operating funds will receive a low priority except for temporary emergency or transitional circumstances.
