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 $1 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 for Food Shelves. Since the first community charity challenge in 2001, the Norman C. Skalicky Foundation has raised more than $850,000 for Central Minnesota food shelves.

Help for Haiti. The NCSF raised more than $130,000, matching $50,000 to benefit those in need after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota. The NCSF raised more than $500,000, matching that amount dollar for dollar, for the 2007 Eastside Boys & Girls Club’s building campaign.  “The $500,000 gift is the largest gift received from an individual in our organization’s 33-year history, and we are just overwhelmed by Norm Skalicky’s generosity,” said Mark Sakry, executive director.

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