Donate to Downtown Bismarck’s Future!

Downtown Bismarck Community Foundation 501c3 supports Innovative, Community-Building Programs in Downtown Bismarck for the whole community.  Our organization is entirely privately funded by members and fundraising events, which is why your support is so critical.
Consider a tax-deductible year end donation to our foundation.  We can put any donation amount to work, building back the vibrancy of Downtown Bismarck.

Downtown Bismarck Security Analysis
The Downtowners have been collaborating with the hardworking folks at BPD on a number of community policing topics. Recently, BPD presented their Security Assessment of Downtown Bismarck. Areas of lighting deficiencies, areas needing more property security measures, etc. BPD mapped each location flagged for review and we went through them as a group. The Downtowners will be sending out the map to members and property owners/city departments to address the proposed security improvements for Downtown and Bismarck ND City. Members will be contacted if a security deficiency was flagged at their business/property.
