Support the “Share in Northfield’s Future” Fund

Be a community partner and donate to the fund!

You can help Northfield Shares meet the goal of $175,000.  The entire Share in Northfield’s Future Fund will be distributed to area nonprofits supporting our community as a whole.  Gifts of all amounts are appreciated and make a difference.  Make a donation today!

Enjoy autumn in Northfield and support the fund at the same time!

Order a delicious autumn drink and support Northfield Shares!  Try a Dreamy Neighbor at the Fairfield Inn & Suites, a Highnoon Highball at the Archer House Inn + Bar, or the Northfield in the Fall at Reunion.  These local businesses will donate $2 from the purchase of each drink to the Share in Northfield’s Future Fund through the month of September.

Light Among the Darkness 

In a gracious and very creative gesture of support for Northfield, local artist Wendell Arneson donated a painting titled “Light Among the Darkness,” which was auctioned off to support the Share in Northfield’s Future Fund.  Thank you, Wendell!
