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 2021 was held Thurs., Feb. 11.

Participating charities raised a total of $22,019,694 from 34,567 Giving Hearts on that day. There were 89,162 total donations from 42,272 donors, plus 769 pledges of volunteerism and 234 goods pledged.
