Moving Bemidji Forward Together
Bemidji Area Gifts of Hope
The Gifts of Hope Fund was established to help local businesses and families that are in critical need due to the impact of COVID-19.
A portion of the fund was used to purchase gift certificates from area businesses, which were in turn, donated to United Way of Bemidji. United Way distributed the gift certificates to local families economically impacted by COVID-19.
The remaining portion of the fund was focused on incentivizing the public to purchase gift certificates from our locally owned and homegrown businesses.
THANK YOU to all those who purchased, sponsored, and assisted in promoting this program. Your contributions continue to make a difference in our community.
