Four North Dakota nonprofits – two based in Minot and one each in Fargo and Grand Forks – have been awarded 2023 Gibbens Memorial Grants by NDAD.

NDAD annually awards at least one grant of up to $5,000 annually to an agency/organization to be used for a health, welfare, social service or educational purpose for at-risk populations. The grant is named for NDAD’s late co-founders and longtime organization leaders, Faye and Ron Gibbens.

The nonprofit logos shown are for the Women's Care Center, Fargo; Prairie Grit Adaptive Sports ("With Grit ANYTHING is Possible!), Minot, The Salvation Army, Grand Forks; and Minot Family YMCA.
Congratulations to these NDAD Gibbens Memorial Grant winners!
The 2023 Gibbens Grant Award recipients each received grants of up to $5,000:
  • Women's Care Center, Fargo - Grant money will be used to purchase course materials, booklets and supplies for  “Raising Kids with Character” and “Strong Fathers,” curricula class additions to the center’s Parenting and Life Skills Education and Training program. 
  • The Salvation Army, Grand Forks - As part of its annual back-to-school program, The Salvation Army will use grant money toward purchase of shoes for Grand Forks County and toddlers and school-age children in need. 
  • Prairie Grit Adaptive Sports, Minot - Prairie Grit will purchase two sports wheelchairs to add to its existing fleet of wheelchairs used by youth and adults at camps, tournaments and open-gym activities that include basketball, tennis, flag football, pickle ball and dance classes. 
  • Minot Family YMCA - The Y will acquire a wheelchair specifically made for sand terrain and beach use to help provide better waterfront and lake shore access to guests with mobility issues at Triangle Y Camp near Garrison.
A second 2023 Gibbens Memorial Grant call for applications is planned this fall.  We invite you to follow NDAD.org and our Facebook page for updates.
