Northview's Endowment Fund is held and administered by the FM Area Foundation.
There are two options available for those wanting to contribute to Northview's endowment fund:
- When writing a check, the check should be made payable to the FM Area Foundation with Northview Church Endowment Fund in the memo line and sent directly to the FM Area Foundation. (409 7th St. S, Fargo, ND 58103)
- If giving online follow this link – Northview Church Endowment Fund. The link will take you to our page within the FM Area Foundation giving portal. This contribution option does require a 3% credit card processing fee.
If you are a North Dakota resident, you can make a contribution to an endowment fund, such as Northview's, with a minimum annual contribution of $5,000 and receive a credit of 40% off of your ND income taxes (a $5,000 contribution would provide a $2,000 credit). It is best, of course, to consult your tax advisor, if you were to consider such a contribution, to determine how it would impact both your federal and state tax situation.
We will not keep a record of these contributions and they will not appear on giving statements from Northview. All reporting will be done through the FM Area Foundation and you will receive a receipt from the FM Area Foundation to use to file your tax returns.
