Our Mission: To improve the quality of life for North Dakota’s citizens through charitable giving and promoting philanthropy.
Established in 1976, the North Dakota Community Foundation is a public, non-profit, tax-exempt organization that receives and distributes charitable funds to support a wide range of programs that benefit North Dakotans. The Foundation currently manages over $50 Million in assets and has made more than $54 Million in grants across the state of North Dakota.

Outright gifts, including gifts of appreciated property, stocks, closely held stock, cash and real estate, are accepted by the North Dakota Community Foundation. The Foundation can also work with you in deferred giving.
