Matched Funds Will Benefit Three Local Nonprofits, Spur Community Growth and Affordable Housing
FARGO – Three local nonprofits – and those they gratefully serve – have 850,000 reasons to smile this spring, thanks to a longstanding partnership between Gate City Bank and one of the nation’s leading member-owned financial cooperatives, Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (FHLB Des Moines).
In late March, as part of a grant-matching program aimed at stimulating affordable housing and communitydevelopment – where FHLB Des Moines contributed $3 for every $1 donated by Gate City Bank – the two organizations successfully earmarked $850,000 for YWCA Cass Clay, Beyond Shelter and Cass Clay Community Land Trust. The money was made possible through FHLB Des Moines’ Member Impact Fund, which Gate City Bank was proud to utilize and support.
To receive dollars from the Member Impact Fund, nonprofits across the country were nominated by members of FHLB Des Moines. That’s where Gate City Bank came in, filling out grant applications on behalf of YWCA Cass Clay,
Beyond Shelter and Cass Clay Community Land Trust – organizations the bank has worked closely with over the years, and who work tirelessly to benefit communities within its footprint. The funds were allocated as such:
• YWCA Cass Clay ($560,000)
• Beyond Shelter ($250,000)
• Cass Clay Community Land Trust ($40,000)
