Moorhead Community Fund

Downtown 18 

The Moorhead Community Fund through the FM Area Foundation was established in 2018 to provide opportunities to fund raise toward community amenities for our residents and visitors without solely relying on property taxes and user fees. Donations to the Moorhead Community Fund are tax-deductible.

Donors may choose to support specific activities or the more general categories as noted below.  Thank you from the City of Moorhead for your consideration of these community amenities, facilities, and activities!

To donate to the Community Fund, please visit the FM Area Foundation webpage.  

For more information on any of these initiatives, please contact Holly Heitkamp, City of Moorhead Parks & Recreation Director by phone at 218.299.5515, extension 3, or by email at  holly.heitkamp@cityofmoorhead.com

K-9 MPD

K9 Police Dog:

A new K-9 for our Police Department and the associated cost of training and other expenses related to maintaining the K-9 team.

River Corridor and Trails

River Corridor and Trails:

Trails and recreational/art amenities along the trails to provide a visible and publicly accessible source of pride, beauty, culture and recreation for residents (consistent with the City's River Corridor Plan).  Donations will provide recreation amenities such as benches, garbage receptacles, dog waste receptacles and will provide a source of matching funds to leverage grant opportunities.  

swimming pool

 

Community Recreation Center / Aquatics:  

Moorhead’s existing swimming pool was built in 1959 and is in need of replacement.  The goal for this project is to provide both an indoor and outdoor aquatics experience as well as indoor gym space to provide recreational fun year round!

Matson Memorial Field

Matson Field Improvements: 

Desired enhancements to Matson Field include a covered grandstand and scoreboard to enhance Moorhead’s baseball experience.

Inclusive playground

Inclusive Playground:

We want to establish a new inclusive playground, designed to provide a safe place where children of all abilities can play together.

Centennial DogPark

Dog Park in south Moorhead:

Off-leash dog areas have become extremely popular and are an important park amenity in any community, and our residents want a dog park on the south side of Moorhead for our furry friends to exercise and play off-leash, providing social activity with other dogs and their owners, similar to Centennial Dog Park.

southside regional park moorhead

Southside Regional Park Field Lights:

Southside Regional Park is currently home to a number of Moorhead’s youth sporting organizations including football, soccer, lacrosse, and youth baseball.  An amenity that would extend the season in the spring and fall is to have field lighting on five fields.

Youth Scholarship Fund

Youth Scholarship Fund: 

Moorhead Parks and Recreation currently offers underprivileged Moorhead youth up to three program scholarships annually. Donations to the Scholarship fund allow more children to participate, enriching their experiences by boosting confidence, supporting active play, and encouraging the growth of friendship and community pride.
