Make a lasting impact by growing our endowment.

Growing our endowment will provide an enduring and stable source of income for decades to come, ensuring future generations benefit from Prairie Public's inspiring, life-enriching programs.

Our undesignated endowment—not tied to a specific purpose—is particularly valuable because it provides the flexibility to supplement areas of greatest need or take advantage of unforeseen opportunities.

Your endowment gift will allow Prairie Public to look to the future with increased confidence as we continue to fulfill our vital mission of providing programs that educate, involve, and inspire.

North Dakota Charitable Income Tax Credit

If you are a North Dakota taxpayer, you may be able to claim a credit of 40% on a minimum donation of $5,000 to a qualified endowment through the North Dakota Charitable Income Tax Credit. This is on top of the savings you receive on your federal tax return by itemizing your qualifying charitable donation.

For individuals, North Dakota law allows a 40% state tax credit for contributions to qualified endowments of nonprofits. The contribution must be $5,000 or greater, and the maximum credit is $10,000 per year per taxpayer, or $20,000 per year per couple filing jointly.

For businesses, including financial institutions, it offers a 40% state tax credit. The maximum credit per year is $10,000.

For your gift of $25,000 or more to Prairie Public’s qualified endowment fund, you may choose to designate the interest from your gift to help sustain a particular area of interest; for example, news and public affairs; arts, culture, music and drama; science and nature; education and children’s programs; outreach and community engagement; facilities and equipment.

For your gift of $50,000 or more, we offer 52 on-air acknowledgments per year for 10 years. You may choose TV and/or radio acknowledgments.

Your gift of $5,000 or more will be acknowledged in our annual report.
