Forever Fund

Consider investing in our community's future by partnering with us as we work to activate hope in our community and create sustainable change that will span generations.  Supporting the Forever Fund is a meaningful way to both make an expression of your values and realize significant financial, tax, and estate planning benefits.  

Donating to the United Way of Bemidji Area’s Forever Fund will help us balance our community in the areas of basic needs, health, and education.  This fund provides donors the ability to make a gift that keeps giving for generations to come.


The Forever Fund was created to serve as the backbone of our community, by providing long-term funding to our local United Way. This fund serves two purposes, 1) Emergency community funding, when needed; and 2) Support funding for United Way to ensure their work is sustainable over time.


The process is simple, but the impact will be felt throughout the community.

Cash/Checks can be made payable to: United Way of Bemidji Area
