Mission & Vision

As the premier association, leader and voice of North Dakota’s nonprofits, the North Dakota Association of Nonprofit Organizations (NDANO) will strengthen communities and enhance quality of life through engaging and ensuring a strong charitable sector.

NDANO was founded in 1997 by state nonprofit leaders who recognized the need to strengthen nonprofit organizations in North Dakota and their ability to serve the needs of individuals and communities.

NDANO is the statewide membership association for the North Dakota nonprofit sector. Our members work in all mission areas, from human services and the environment to education and the arts, and represent all sizes, from small volunteer-run nonprofits to multi-million dollar agencies.

NDANO supports and advances North Dakota nonprofits through advocacy, training, resources, networking and leadership.
