Challenge Grant a Success
In early 2011, the Otto Bremer Foundation pledged generous support for the hospital expansion and renovations at Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin with a $300,000 challenge grant. A little more than a year later, Riverwood Foundation reports that the community, whose donations were matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $300,000, helped the Foundation meet this challenge.

The Otto Bremer Foundation contributed $150,000 to Riverwood Foundation to kick off the Better Together Capital Campaign and is giving an additional $150,000 now that the challenge grant has been met.
