Cultural Endowment Fund

The North Dakota Cultural Endowment Fund was created by the State Legislature in 1979. The goals of the endowment are:

  • To create a vehicle through which the North Dakota Council on the Arts can secure private and public funds to enhance existing programs;
  • And to provide a stable funding source for the Council.

You can contribute to Cultural Endowment Fund directly in any amount you feel is appropriate. This contribution can be made in your name, in the name of someone else, or anonymously and is tax deductible.

Send to:

  • North Dakota Cultural Endowment Fund
    c/o North Dakota Council on the Arts
    1600 East Century Avenue, Suite 6
    Bismarck, ND 58503-0649
  • Be sure to include your name, address, city, state, zip, and the amount of the contribution. If the contribution is to be made in someone else's name, be sure to include that as well.

For more information on the Cultural Endowment Fund, contact the Council on the Arts at (701) 328-7590 or
