Nov. 1st kicks off our 5th Fall Fundraiser.

Our 5th Annual Fall Fundraiser has begun! Any donations we receive during the month of November are doubled!! Yes, you read that right, we have matching money, so we can get a whole lot of donations doubled this year.

Join us in making an impact in our community!As a reminder, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Our goal is to remove the transportation barrier for in-need members of our community thus helping enable them to be independent and self-sufficient.

This is accomplished in two ways. First by providing free car repairs to needy individuals keeping their vehicles on the road and safe. Second by repairing donated vehicles and giving them to needy members in our community who do not have a vehicle or whose vehicle is beyond repair.Being good stewards of our available resources is paramount to our success. We have structured our organization to maximize the impact of every donation we receive.

We utilized volunteers to repair vehicles. We work with local parts resellers to get the best possible prices on the parts needed. Our partnership with Fix It Forward Auto Care in both Moorhead and South Fargo provides us with shop space, tools, insurance and utilities at no cost, eliminating one of the biggest expenses for a ministry like ours. Utilizing our partnerships with over 40 service organizations in Fargo-Moorhead, we are able to operate without the need of case managers to vet incoming requests.

With these efforts we have gotten the average cost to get a vehicle safely back on the road down to around $479! This is 1/3 of the national repair average. Right now, it is a great opportunity for you to become part of the mission that makes this all possible. During November, donations will be matched so your impact is doubled! Your support makes this possible!

You can donate online at or mail/drop off at our either of our FIFAC shops at 2620 2nd Ave N Moorhead, MN 56560 or 6219 53rd Ave S Fargo, ND 58104.

Thank you for your support and God bless!

Fix It Forward Ministry. Driven To Serve.
