The Chisholm Community Foundation's mission is to be a steward of funds for innovative and creative projects, which are responsive to community and economic development in the areas of social service, education, arts and culture, conservation, and historic and environmental preservation.

The Chisholm Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Minnesota Philanthropy Partners, is a permanent, philanthropic endowment for the enduring benefit of our community. It secures, manages and allocates investors’ gifts for charitable purposes in the Chisholm and Balkan area, working to improve the quality of life for local residents. We have awarded over $1,000,000 in grants to various organizations within our community. Our Foundation stands as a beacon among small community foundations in our state and we are extremely proud of our accomplishments.




The Chisholm Community Foundation (CCF), along with other community partners, will be sponsoring a “Slide the City” event on Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Slide the City is a family-friendly slip and slide water party event.  People of all ages from across the Range are expected to participate in a fun-filled day on Chisholm’s Main Street, where a 1,000 foot waterslide will be set up.  Ticket sales include a Triple Slide pass for $20.00 or an All Day Slide pass for $40.00.  “Tickets will be available to purchase at Jim’s Sports Club, Tom & Jerry’s & Valentini’s Supper Club in Chisholm;  Mr. Nick’s, Palmers Tavern & Prime Lending in Hibbing and Poppers Bar in Virginia.”  All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the CCF.


Sponsoring events like this allows the CCF to award the grants that have such an impact on the lives of the people in our area.  The CCF has a major presence in our community and we are continually striving to make Chisholm a better place to live.


Please help support our community by joining us in what is sure to be an exciting and fun day on Chisholm’s Main Street!
