Kevin J. Dvorak, president and CEO of the North Dakota Community Foundation, delivered a grant recently to the Jamestown Regional Medical Center Foundation.

The JRMC Foundation and Family BirthPlace accepted the grant for the Hugs Infant Protection System in the amount of $1,500.

“The North Dakota Community Foundation is pleased to partner with JRMC,” Dvorak said. “It’s great to see that JRMC is completed and has continued to enhance their equipment and technology, and we are glad to be a part of it.”

The area grants were made from the North Dakota Community Foundation’s Statewide Greatest Needs Fund. Grants were awarded on a competitive basis, Dvorak said. This year the NDCF Board of Directors approved 49 of the 149 grant requests that were received. The NDCF and its component funds will provide more than $3 million in grants all across North Dakota in 2013.

“I was amazed at the number of grant requests and the incredible projects and programs that are happening across our state,” said Diane Peyerl, NDCF Board member. We are pleased that our NDCF grants will enhance the quality of life for North Dakota citizens.”
