Keweenaw Community Foudation’s Keweenaw Cross Country Endowment recently awarded the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club $1,750 to help defray the cost of purchasing a new snowmobile for cross country ski trail grooming and track setting.

Keweenaw Community Foundation is a non-profit, community organization created by and for the people of Houghton and Keweenaw counties. Established in 1994, KCF inspires giving that invests in our community’s quality of life. They provide sustainable financial support to organizations for projects aimed at solving problems and enhancing life in our community. They also serve as a catalyst for change, a partner for other local organizations, and a resource for solutions to emerging community needs. KCF’s motto is “For good. For ever.” And with over 80 funds, they truly impact not only residents but also visitors to our communities.

Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club’s mission is to promote the sport of cross-country skiing in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan for both youth and adults and to provide stewardship of the Maasto Hiihto and Churning Rapids trails. KNSC is committed to ensuring trails will always be usable year round for silent sports. To accomplish our mission effectively requires an enormous investment, both in paid and volunteer labor, and especially in equipment, tools, and supplies. KNSC would not be able to fulfill its mission to the highest degree possible, without the generosity of organizations such as the Keweenaw Community Foundation.
