Orin and Marjorie Green owned a business and raised a family in Thief River Falls and were active members of the community. Before his passing in 2005, Orin operated Green Funeral Home, was mayor of Thief River Falls and actively served on many boards. Marjorie continues to reside there.
Working with legal counsel, Marjorie and her children, Carter, Lori and Sarah, contacted Northwest Minnesota Foundation regarding the establishment of a "donor-advised" and "designated beneficiary" fund as part of Marjorie's estate planning and the family's desire to continue to make a difference in Thief River Falls.
The Orin J. and Marjorie F. Green Charitable Fund, a donor advised fund, was established and generously funded to provide financial support for qualifying charitable and educational programs, projects and activities, including Christian Children's Fund, Hospice, Northland Community and Technical College Foundation, Salvation Army for the benefit of Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls Education Foundation, United Methodist Church, and Valley Home Society.
NMF is able to provide the vehicle to fulfill the family's goals and will continue to work with her children to recommend funding from the Orin J. and Marjorie F. Green Charitable Fund for these special programs in Thief River Falls.
In October 2011, Marjorie and her family were presented with the NMF Circle of Vision award, given in recognition of those donors who have made current gifts, irrevocable planned gifts or publicly announced will bequests of $100,000 or more made by individuals, families, organizations or businesses in direct support of the foundation or any of its component funds.
