Bremer Foundation matching farm assistance program donations
Farm Rescue, a nonprofit organization that provides planting and harvesting assistance to farm families who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster, received a “one for one” grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation. The Otto Bremer Foundation will award one dollar to Farm Rescue for each dollar donated by new sponsors, grantors and individual donors, up to $35,000.
Farm Rescue helped a record number of 50 farm families in 2013, bringing the total helped since the organization’s inception to 252.
The Otto Bremer Foundation and Bremer Bank were among the first sponsors of Farm Rescue and continue to be strong supporters of helping farm families through the nonprofit organization. In 2013, Bremer Bank donated $25,000 and the Otto Bremer Foundation donated $75,000.
Farm Rescue provides assistance to farm families in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Minnesota, and Iowa. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2014 planting season, which can be obtained by calling 252-2017 or visiting (www.farmrescue.org).
