Board of Directors

The NDCF Board of Directors is comprised of individuals from all over North Dakota in various professions and walks of life.

The NDCF Board of Directors are volunteers. They receive no financial compensation for their service on the Board. They are elected from the population of North Dakota and are selected to represent a broad cross-section of North Dakotans. They can serve 2 three-year terms and then must leave the Board. This structure ensures that the North Dakota Community Foundation is truly the people of North Dakota's Foundation.
