Bank Forward Donates $1,000 to Holiday Magic from Markus

Grand Forks, ND – As part of Bank Forward’s 90th Anniversary Pay it Forward campaign, Brady Trenbeath, Market President of Bank Forward Grand Forks, is pleased to announce a $1,000 donation has been made to Holiday Magic from Markus. The donation will help the organization with their annual purchase of holiday gifts for children who are fighting a serious illness.

“Their mission really aligns with our beliefs and culture here at Bank Forward and Forward Foundation,” Trenbeath says of Holiday Magic from Markus. “These are children in our community who are having health issues, some spending Christmas in the hospital. As a parent myself, I can’t imagine being in their shoes. If we can help them forget about their worries for a short period of time - we want to help anyway we can.”

Holiday Magic from Markus was created in memory of University of North Dakota Football fan Markus Bryant and is administered by UND athletes. To learn more visit
