The AACF has a goal each year of raising $10,000 which is matched dollar for dollar by the North Dakota Community Foundation. The cash raffle was just one of the projects AACF sponsored this year. AACF thanks all who have been supportive in helping to achieve reaching their goal. Each year grants are awarded to applicants who are non-profit organizations from the Anamoose area. AACF is just shy of reaching their goal for 2012. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 174, Anamoose, ND 58710.
