Giving Hearts Day 2019

Giving Hearts Day is an annual event - a 24-hour online give-athon of goodwill helping NDAD and hundreds of other nonprofits in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota through generous contributions. It's organized by Dakota Medical Foundation, Impact Foundation and Alex Stern Family Foundation.

The next Giving Hearts Day is set for Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2019.

Giving Hearts Day provides a splendid opportunity for you to be a partner in NDAD's important giving mission through your spirit of generosity. By donating to NDAD on Giving Hearts Day, you support children and adults with disabilities and health issues throughout North Dakota and neighboring northwest Minnesota border cities.

Giving Hearts count - especially when they beat together.

NEW THIS YEAR: Anytime between now and Feb. 14, Giving Hearts Day, go online to and say #countme and, especially #countme4NDAD. Schedule your gift, and your donation will be processed for you on Giving Hearts Day.

Or, mail or drop off a check at any NDAD office on or before Feb. 14. Please make your check payable to NDAD, date the check Feb. 14, 2019, and write "Giving Hearts Day" on the memo line.

Watch for additional information on this page and on NDAD's Facebook and Twitter social media sites.

Give to NDAD. Be a part of our vital mission.

It's AMAZING what people can do when there's help - from NDAD and your giving heart.
