Basin Electric’s member matching fund put to use in Bottineau, ND

Basin Electric’s Charitable Giving Program, in existence since 2002, brings greater community support to rural America. One component of this program is the matching donation fund, in which Basin Electric matches donations made by our member systems.

North Central Electric Cooperative in Bottineau, ND, recently used Basin Electric’s matching donation fund to support various community efforts in Bottineau. Pete Erickson with North Central Electric says the matching donation fund program works well. “We’re really happy with how this program has worked, and Basin’s extra contribution is appreciated,” Erickson says.
