Welcome to NDCF, building brighter futures since 1976.
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." - Theodore Roosevelt
North Dakotans helping North Dakotans. The North Dakota Community Foundation was formed with that purpose in mind - to create an easy way for North Dakotans to help their neighbors and friends, now and in the future, through charitable giving and promoting philanthropy here at home. We currently administer over 700 charitable funds, including 67 different community foundations in the state. If you want to support your home town forever, we can help you do that. If you want to support a charitable organization that speaks to your heart, we can do that, too. If you want to create a donor-advised fund and determine which organizations to support every year, we're the place to go. We exist to help you help others.
To improve the quality of life for North Dakota's citizens through charitable giving and promoting philanthropy.
You can continue to support the causes and organizations that mean the most to you long after you have gone by establishing or contributing to an endowment fund. Search our funds or search your heart for what matters most to you. What will your legacy be? We can help you create it.
NDCF has over 700 funds that support North Dakota communities, charities, and schools. Search our funds by location or name or contact us to set up your own donor-advised fund and support the causes that mean the most to you.
