The North Dakota Rural Electric Cooperatives Foundation, a public charity, was created to help expand our ability to fundraise and increase our more charitable projects and to expand our capacity to offer technical assistance. The Foundation has received private funds from the Bush Foundation and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Caring Foundation to assist the RAD Co-op and we are continuing to work on developing our fundraising strategy for other projects in rural North Dakota.


Vibrant, sustainable rural communities, now and into the future.


Providing resources to empower communities to pursue opportunities, address challenges, and bring dreams to reality.


Integrity, Cooperation, Community, Resourcefulness, Innovation, Adaptability, Sustainability.
