Hospitality for Healthcare Fund

This Program has ended

Thank you to all those who took part in the program!

Donations are still being accepted!

Thank you for considering a donation to the Hospitality for Healthcare Fund.  The program, a collaboration of the FMCVB, FMWF Chamber, DCP and FM Area Foundation, ran from April 29 through May 4, and resulted in nearly 3,000 meal discounts for healthcare workers and first-responders.  We’re happy for the program’s big success, but the sheer volume of discounts has left our fund for the program upside down. Consequently, we would be greatly appreciative for any donation you can offer.

Below are a link and some easy bullets on how the program worked.  If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]

 Hospitality For Healthcare 

  • Through this program, participating restaurants signed up to offer people working in healthcare as well as first responders a $15 discount off the total of their order. All they had to do was ask for the healthcare/first responder discount when they ordered, then show their badge upon pickup.
  • The FM Area Foundation is handling the donations, which are tax-deductible, and will use them to reimburse restaurants for the cost of the discount. 

More info on the program can be found here –, and the next link will take you directly to the donation page, no muss, no fuss.

Other donors so far include the CVB, the Chamber, Sanford Health, Microsoft, Bremer Bank, Happy Harry’s, Border States Electric, Moore Engineering, Blue Cross-Blue Shield of ND, D-S Beverages, Midco, and others. Please let us know if you have any questions.
