ND Challenge Grant Fund Program
North Dakota can boost your gift by fifty percent! The ND Challenge Grant Fund was established in the 2013-15 Legislative Session to match private donations made to state college foundations. This initiative extends beyond North Dakota allowing donors from across the country to see an immediate 50% return on their investment.
Qualifying standards require gifts to be designated for student scholarships or educational infrastructure. The donation can be made in full or pledged for up to five years. Gift agreements are established to honor the donor's wishes and the type of legacy they would like to create.
The ND Challenge grant runs from July 1, 2023 through December 31, 2024. If you are interested in utilizing this match to make a powerful philanthropic impact, please contact the NDSCS Alumni Foundation at 671-2247 and together we can explore the opportunities that interest you.
Ways to Give
You can make a gift with your credit or debit card from your computer, smartphone or by calling our office, by mailing a check or by setting up a planned gift.
