Giving Hearts Day 2021

Giving Hearts Day is an annual 24-hour online fundraising event that helps NDAD and numerous other nonprofits in North Dakota and western Minnesota through generous contributions. 

Each year, Giving Hearts Day provides a platform for charities to fund their missions through an ever-increasing community of donors, many of whom get to experience the joy of giving for the first time.  Founded in 2008, Giving Hearts Day is the longest-running giving day in the country, and it has helped participating charities raise more than $70 million.

Giving Hearts Day 2020 was held Thurs., Feb. 13.

Participating charities raised a total of $19,096,741 from 34,567 Giving Hearts on that day.

Each Giving Hearts Day provides an awesome opportunity for you to be a partner in NDAD's important 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 adjacent border communities.
