  • $300k donated to ND Governor’s Residence

    Fargo-based Nodak Mutual Insurance and Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Sanford Health will each donate $100,000, while Watford City-based First International Bank and Trust and Mandan-based Touchstone Energy Cooperatives will each contribute $50,000 to the construction effort, committee co-chair Jim Poolman said.

    “These four corporations that have stepped up to the plate deserve enormous amounts of credits for giving back the way they have,” he said.

    State lawmakers voted last spring to spend up to $4 million in public money on the new residence as long as $1 million in private funds can be raised. Poolman said the Friends of the North Dakota Governor’s Residence fundraising committee has raised nearly $375,000 so far, and he hopes to announce within the next couple of weeks that they’ve secured the $500,000 required before construction can start.

    In addition to the corporate donations, he said more than $20,000 in contributions has been received from donors across the state through the website www.friendsoftheresidence.com. He hopes to hit the $1 million mark during the first quarter of 2016.

    “I’m confident that we will get this done before significant progress is made on the building,” he said.
