Dakota Medical Foundation – Governor

We Work By & Through Others

“Helping improve patient access to much-needed dental care is important to DMF. Particularly for those who can’t afford the cost of treatment. We love how the Midwest spirit of helping our neighbor is on full display at the North Dakota Mission of Mercy and we invite all to join us in giving to this important cause.”

– Pat Traynor, Dakota Medical Foundation Executive Director

We lead initiatives to create a region of the healthiest people, build the fundraising success of health-related nonprofits, and invest in new ideas that can create widespread health improvement.

We further invest our resources in helping nonprofits become exceptional at fundraising. With money for their missions, organizations multiply their impact on health and quality of life. Our fundraising system teaches charities “how to fish” and has trained nearly 5,000 people from more than 450 nonprofits in North Dakota and western Minnesota. Organizations using the system are raising vastly more and are expanding their capacity to solve health problems we face in this region.
