The Thief River Falls Area Community Fund (TRFACF) recently received a gift of stock from John and Lorraine Seaverson. The gift will be matched bringing the total donation to $12,700. “Lorraine and I both grew up in Thief River Falls and it is a great place to raise a family,” said John Seaverson. “We are happy to support the Thief River Falls Area Community Fund!” This generous gift of stock, valued at nearly $6,000, resulted in a total contribution of $12,700 with the addition of matching donations.

The TRFACF has replaced the United Way, and will be providing grants to community organizations. The purpose of the fund is to support charitable, education and public purpose projects that will enhance or improve the quality of life for residents in the Thief River Falls area.
