ND Nonprofit Sector
The North Dakota nonprofit sector strengthens the economy as employers and contributors to the state GDP; improves communities through critical mission work in arts and culture, education, the environment, health care, human services, religion and more; and engages diverse stakeholders to address vital issues.
Nonprofits Matter: The Impact of North Dakota’s Nonprofit Sector highlights the essential work of the state's charitable nonprofits in all mission areas.
As an example, North Dakota nonprofits:
- Employ 13 percent of the state’s workforce.
- Leverage volunteer power ($404 million of service contributed) to enhance professional staff and impact.
- Improve the health and well-being of citizens, communities and the land.
“While individual nonprofits are often recognized for their important work, the collective impact of the state’s nonprofit sector is often overlooked,” says Tim Eissinger, NDANO president and Anne Carlson Center chief operating officer.
