About this Series: The Northwest Minnesota Foundation staff believes that we can all make a difference in our communities by stepping forward to becoming part of something bigger. This belief not only helps drive our day-to-day activities at work but is also apparent in our personal lives. This series highlights our staff’s commitment to community through their volunteer activities, those that occur outside of the traditional work day.

Dawn Ganje is NMF’s Director for Community Philanthropy and volunteers with the Northwest Private Industry Council Board, a private, nonprofit organization that provides administration and oversight for federal and state employment and training services to residents and businesses across Northwest Minnesota.


“I am the Vice President of the Northwest Private Industry Council Board (NWPIC). I volunteer my time here as a private sector business owner from Norman County to guide programs workforce development programs. Having a ready and equipped workforce is important to the region where we live and work.”
