Overview:

Myra Foundation was organized under and pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the last will and testament of the late John E. Myra, who at the time of his death in 1939 had business and farming interests in Grand Forks County, North Dakota. He resided at Emerado, North Dakota. 

The Foundation was founded for charitable and educational purposes, and therefore its grants have been limited to those for such purposes. Because of the great amount of grant applications received in recent years, the effective focus of the Foundation’s energies and limited resources has required that it concentrate its grant making activity in the Grand Forks County area. Consequently, the Foundation has limited its grants to qualified organizations and institutions located within Grand Forks County and serving or benefiting the citizens of such county, including the City of Grand Forks. 

Today, the Foundation owns 5545 acres of farmland in Grand Forks County. It leases the land to local farmers and the income generated from the farming operations is distributed according to the terms of the Foundation's mission. The three trustees currently administering the Myra Foundation are Donna Gillig, Kent Cronquist, and John Botsford.
