Community Foundation Grant

The Detroit Lakes Area Community Foundation is here to assist in the funding of activities that promote quality cultural, educational, civic, wellness, environmental and economic development programs in the Detroit Lakes community, involving all age groups, urban and rural areas, men and women, and the disadvantaged.

The Detroit Lakes Community Foundation Offers

Continuity. Gifts can continue to provide community support over a period of years.

Simplicity. One gift may benefit numerous organizations or activities.

Perpetuity. A fund may be established in the name a family, friend, or organization with assurance that the proceeds will benefit the community well beyond the donor’s lifetime.

Security. A well established, ongoing foundation using professional investment counselors assures sound management of gifts.

Tax Benefits. Donations are deductible to the extent allowed by Internal Revenue Service codes.

How Does It Work?

The Foundation operates under the direction of an Advisory Committee comprised of five individuals to be representative of the community. The Detroit Lakes Regional Chamber of Commerce, the City of Detroit Lakes, the Detroit Lakes Jaycees and United Way each nominate a member to serve on the Advisory Committee for the Foundation. A fifth member-at-large is chosen by the other four members.

Their responsibility is to:

Monitor the management of the Foundation funds to ensure maximum return for community needs; Distribute available funds to eligible organizations through a grant process; Inform the community of work of the Foundation in order to strengthen public understanding and support; Serve the community by working with grant seekers and donors; Seek funds for the on-going work of the Foundation.

City Council Supports the Detroit Mountain Recreational Area

The Detroit Lakes City Council approved the funding of $300,000 over six years for the Detroit Mountain Recreational Area Project. 

Not only will Detroit Mountain be open for downhill skiing in the winter, the plan calls for camping, hiking and biking in the warmer seasons and cross country skiing and tubing in the winter.

The total cost of the project is estimated at $6.2 million. With the city as landowner, there would be no property taxes or debt service, making the project doable.

Since another entity would run the facility, that entity would be responsible for the insurance and benefits for the employees, too, not the city. The operating entity would also be responsible for the liability insurance.

Though the city would be the landowner, another entity — most likely DMRA, though the city has the final say on who — would manage the property, similar to how the Detroit Country Club works. The city owns the land the golf course sits on, but the country club group runs the facility. The employees are employees of the country club, not the city. The country club has its own board of directors as well, just like the Detroit Mountain would.

The same goes for the Legion Campground. The city owns the land but the Legion operates the campground.

City Administrator Bob Louiseau said that if the council wants to support this project, the $50,000 a year for six years could be found in various funds over the years, but, “I wouldn’t pin it down to any single fund right now.”

The City of Detroit Lakes will be  the Legal Sponsor for the Park Legacy and DNR Regional Park Grant Applications.  

Without the DNR’s $2.1 million grant though, it would be a no-go. The DNR has expressed interest in having a regional park in the Detroit Lakes area. The grant deadline is Sept. 28, and the applicant will know by the end of the year if the DNR grant is awarded or not.
