Memorial Gift

Memorials gifts are a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one or friend who has died, or to honor someone on a special occasion, such as an anniversary or birthday. All memorial gifts are placed in the Foundation's Endowment Trust, making your contribution a perpetual benefit for our work. All memorials and honor gifts are published in our quarterly newsletter and on display for visitors to see at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. Click here to donate.


To ensure sustainability, we have developed an endowment trust fund, with only interest and earnings used to support the Foundation's work. Please contact President David Borlaug to visit about how you may support the endowment through a special gift or planning giving in your estate. If you pay North Dakota state taxes, there are added benefits for you by supporting our endowment. Contact your tax advisor for more information.

Gary Anderson Fort Mandan Fund

Gary Anderson spent 14 years with the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation delivering tours of Fort Mandan to the public. Following his death in 2011, the Gary Anderson Fort Mandan Fund was created to carry on the work to which he committed much of his life. The fund is used for such things as interpretive programming, staff training, historical research, and furnishing Fort Mandan - the place that Gary loved so much. Click here to donate.
