The NDFU Foundation was established in 2000 to raise funds for Farmers Union’s renowned youth education program. The goal of the foundation is to establish a permanent, sustainable fund for NDFU’s youth program. Gifts do not necessarily have to be monetary and there are a variety of ways to contribute.

While donations of any amount are appreciated, donations of more than $1,000 will be recognized at the state office on a mosaic wall of recognition. Giving levels include: COBALT – $1,000 to $4,999; BRONZE – $5,000 to $14,999; and GOLD – $15,000 and above.
