Norman C. Skalicky Foundation

The Norman C. Skalicky Foundation (NCSF) was established in 1999 by Norm Skalicky, CEO of Stearns Bank. NCSF donates to charities and has challenged communities with fund-raising matching campaigns for worldwide, national, and community disasters and needs.

Over $2 million has been raised by communities and matched by the NCSF since the Foundation was established. It’s one of the ways Stearns Bank and its employee-owners give back to the communities they serve. Following is a brief description of some matching challenges:

Annual Community Charity Challenge. Since the first community charity challenge in 2001, the Norman C. Skalicky Foundation has raised more than $1.3 million for Central Minnesota food shelves.

Boys & Girls Club of Central Minnesota. The NCSF raised over $1.2 million for the Central MN Boys & Girls Club building campaigns in matching challenges.

Habitat For Humanity. The NCSF donated $107,000 in a matching challenge that raised more than $300,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

Global Giving. The NCSF raised over $380,000 in matching challenges to benefit the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami relief efforts and the 2010 Help For Haiti earthquake efforts.
