Donor Impact

Establish a fund for

your charitable giving

Dakota Medical Foundation helps donors distill their personal giving philosophy around passions, values and goals. You might want to make a difference to children’s health, wellness, chronic disease prevention, health scholarships or other medical causes.

When you establish a charitable giving fund at DMF, you benefit from our close collaboration and understanding of the region’s many charities. We establish funds for individuals, families, businesses and community groups.

DMF maintains detailed accounting records for fund advisors. We distribute funds to nonprofits and prepare annual IRS reporting documents. Without burdensome paperwork, your time is free to research charities and have deep involvement with the causes you support.

You are encouraged to grow your fund over time and engage friends and family. Both endowment and donor-advised funds can be established at DMF, with tax deductions at the time of contributions. These funds require initial starting balances of $20,000 and $10,000 respectively.

North Dakota residents and businesses that pay sales tax contributing $5,000 or more to qualified endowment funds may be eligible for a generous 40 percent tax credit.

You hold the keys to quality of life in your community. Your giving can have rich meaning and impact when you work with DMF advisors committed to your personal philanthropic goals.
