Three 2021 Gibbens Memorial Grants have been awarded to North Dakota nonprofits in a second grant round by NDAD.

The grants, each up to $5,000, will be used by the awarded agency/organizations for health, welfare, social service or educational purposes for at-risk populations.
Three other Gibbens Memorial Grants were awarded in the spring following a first round of applications.

The second-round recipients:
NDAD has awarded three additional 2021 Gibbens Memorial Grants from a second round of applicants. The recipients are the North Dakota Friends of Deaf Children Foundation, House of Everyday Learning, and Fraser Ltd.

• House of Everyday Learning, Fargo, for expanding its free developmental screening program and pediatric specialized therapy services. It will use a mobile unit with a sensory/motor gym to serve children and families in rural communities near Tower City.

• North Dakota Friends of Deaf Children Foundation, for developing a lending library in-home assistive safety technology at the state School for the Deaf/Resource Center for Deaf & Hard of Hearing in Devils Lake. It would support adults ages 18 to 60 who are deaf or hard of hearing.

• Fraser Ltd.'s Day Services Program, Fargo, to obtain an advanced, maneuverable sensory cart to help address visual, auditory, tactile and olfaction needs of its non-residential, community based participants with autism and dementia.

The grant is named for NDAD's late co-founders, Faye and Ron Gibbens. Faye was the charitable nonprofit's longtime client program services leader. Ron, her husband of 49 years, was the board president since NDAD's 1975 organization and also its retired chief executive officer. 

Congratulations to these grant recipients. Thanks to all the agencies and organizations that applied for grants this year.
