Our Foundation

Charitable giving to the Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center Foundation enables our organization to continue providing a high quality of care in the midst of future uncertainties. It is possible that operating shortfalls may occur since revenues are determined mostly by the North Dakota reimbursement system and Medicaid regulations. Through our foundation, generous donors are able to help underwrite expenses for special services, facility improvements, and many quality of life programs.

There are many ways you can partner with our foundation to enrich the lives of our residents and tenants. Please contact our Foundation Director, Jessica Gilbertson at 701-221-9349 or for more information.

Originally organized in 1968, the M-50 Club assisted Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center (MSLCC) in achieving its mission of enriching lives. In 2003, the name was changed to M-Club. Funds contributed to M-Club are for equipment or projects which enhance the lives of residents and tenants.

Our M-Club committee is made up of members of local Lutheran churches. The committee meets three times a year to decide which projects to fund. Contributions to the M-Club are accepted at any time throughout the year, and can be made monthly, semi-annually or annually.

ND State Tax Credit

North Dakota state law allows for a generous state tax credit for businesses and individuals who give to qualified endowment funds, such as the one at Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center’s Foundation.

Individual Tax Credit

Individuals may receive a state tax credit for a contribution of $5,000 or more (lump sum or aggregate in one year) to a qualified North Dakota endowment fund. The maximum credit is $10,000 for an individual and $20,000 for a married couple.   The credit can be carried forward for 3 additional tax years if it cannot all be used in one year.

Business entities that pay ND income tax are eligible to receive a 40% state tax credit for gifts to a qualified endowment fund.  The annual limitation for this credit is $10,000. This credit may be carried forward for 3 additional tax years if it cannot all be used in one year.
