Making a difference in our community for over 20 years.


The goal of this nonprofit organization is to maintain a fund to provide charitable assistance, within the Minden area, primarily for those needs not specifically met by other charities or organizations.  Some examples would be assisting a family that has suffered a house fire, a flood, or a family stricken with a devastating illness that creates a financial hardship.

Monies are distributed by application only, and we do not advertise, but rather seek input from ministers, principals, and social workers regarding families in need.  Decisions regarding disbursements are made by a board of not less than six persons. Current members of this board are:

MINDEN FOUNDATION BOARD: Andy Pendergrass, Candi Haynes, Jeff Lee, Bailee Hurley, Jason Ogwyn, Zach Goodman, Braley Raborn, Lindsey Cupples, Carlie Day, and Garrett Vaughan

A golf tournament, along with an auction, and more recently a skeet shoot are the main sources of fund-raising for this foundation.

The foundation has Section 501(c)(3), tax-exempt status, with the Internal Revenue Service.
