What does it mean to be a Friend of the Foundation?
"friend" ˈfrend, a noun: one that favors or promotes something (such as a charity).
Everything we do to promote oral health for all can only be done with and through others. It takes a team of committed volunteers, donors, sponsors, partners, & change agents to make good things happen to improve oral health in North Dakota.
We invite you to explore all the ways you can join us!

Give of Your Time
For our programs to be effective, we rely on volunteers. Donating your time is one of the best gifts you can give. The North Dakota Mission of Mercy alone requires over 500 volunteers.

Leave a Legacy
“What you do for yourself dies with you when you leave this world, what you do for others lives on forever.” – Sir Ken Robinson.
Giving to our endowment, creating a donor advised fund, or leaving NDDF in your will/estate are all great ways to ensure your money goes to work in perpetuity. Giving to future generations.
