We did it!

Our small community has been awarded funding through a bonding bill that was recently signed into law by Governor Walz in the 5th Legislative session. This is extremely exciting for our community!  This project is to build a large community center and fitness room.  The large community room will have access to the kitchen that is included in the new City Hall building. Class reunions, wedding receptions, birthday parties, holiday bazaar, and large family reunions are just a few events that would be able to be hosted in Ellsworth. 

Due to the Coronavirus, we have not been able to hold any fundraising events.  However, we are still able to accept your generous contribution through the Capital Campaign Fundraising.  *** PLEASE NOTE *** – All contribution amounts will be kept confidential.  All contributions are tax deductible through a partnership with the Lismore Area Community Foundation and the Southwest Initiative Foundation.   Any gift, large or small, is appreciated.

This is the time of year to give.  Will you consider making a financial contribution or pledge this holiday season? 

Please consider giving to the Capital Campaign fundraising effort to go toward the new Community Center.  Contributions and/or pledges may be sent to:

Southwest Initiative Foundation

C/O DeNoble, Austin & Company PC

121 S. Story Street

Rock Rapids, Iowa  51246

 

To those who have already given, THANK YOU. Your gift is very much appreciated!

Yes, we did it!  Now we need your support to make it a dream come true for the City of Ellsworth!
