How to Help

A donation to NDAD is not only a humanitarian act, but a wise investment in people with disabilities and health challenges who truly can use assistance.

There are a number of ways you can help NDAD meet our goal of helping people to help themselves:   Individual Donations
Your donation to NDAD will be targeted to provide assistance for North Dakotans with disabilities and serious health challenges. You even may designate your donation to assist one or more of NDAD's client assistance programs.

Links to securely donate online, using your credit card or PayPal account, can be found at the top and bottom of each page, including this one. Click the word "Donate" with the "$" sign in front of it. 

You also can mail a donation to NDAD, or drop it off at any of the organization's North Dakota offices

Community Fundraisers
Another way you may help is by donating to NDAD-sponsored community fundraisers. These are local or regional campaigns conducted to help individuals with disabilities or health issues who are in need of assistance with medical or other costs.

Each NDAD-sponsored fundraiser has its own webpage, and a special "Donate Now" button for that particular fundraiser is located on those pages. There also are instructions where to mail or drop off donations on those same pages.
Honor the memory of a loved on or friend with a memorial to NDAD in that individual's name.

Equipment Donations
NDAD welcomes the contribution of any new or gently used specialized or medical equipment for use by individuals in need through its popular Healthcare Equipment Loan Program (HELP).
Planned Giving
You can contribute to NDAD through:
  • The donation of property
  • Your will
  • Life insurance.
