Burgum Foundation does not limit funding to specific grant categories.  Rather, the Foundation relies on general Interest Areas to guide its grant making. We are most focused on the following general Interest Areas:


Support for exceptional programs that improve educational opportunities and quality of instruction for students in rural communities and disadvantaged backgrounds.


Support for effective programs offering assistance to those in need of a healing, faith-based community and those organizations that create hope and a sense of community in areas that needs it most.



Support for programs that encourage people to take risks and seek opportunities that create value for themselves and others.

Burgum Foundation makes grants only to nonprofit organizations that qualify for public charity status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Most of our grants are limited to organizations located in North Dakota or serving the people of North Dakota
