The NDMCA Foundation was established in 2016 to fund educational scholarships and to further the understanding and image of the North Dakota trucking industry. The Foundation is governed by a board of trustees.

The work of the NDMCA Foundation reflects the mission to support and complement the efforts of the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association. We are dedicated to making a valuable impact on the critical work of the association.

The NDMCA Foundation's Vision Campaign focuses on three important goals of the NDMCA Foundation:

  • Create a Bigger Scholarship Program, which supports careers in transportation
  • Invest in Meaningful Research for North Dakota's Trucking Industry
  • Create an Effective, Ongoing Image Campaign for North Dakota's Trucking Industry

Be a Part of History!

In order to help the NDMCA Foundation's Vision Campaign succeed, we need your support. With a $100,000 goal through 2018, we are asking everyone in the trucking industry to consider a one-time donation to the NDMCA Foundation's Founders Club to provide a solid financial footing for the future of the NDMCA Foundation.

Every individual that donates $250 - $499 and company that donates $1,000 - $2,499 for the Founders Club will be recognized for their contribution on a Donor Wall at the NDMCA Office as well as in Rolling Along, or they can remain anonymous if they wish.

Every individual that donates $500 or more and company that donates $2,500 or more will become a Founders Club Champion and be recognized for their contribution on a Donor Wall at the NDMCA Office as well as in Rolling Along, or they can remain anonymous if they wish.

Also, the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association has committed $40,000 in matching funds for Founders Club donations. That means that your contribution will be matched, dollar for dollar to help the NDMCA Foundation reach its goal.

Donor companies or individuals who wish to give a larger gift to establish a named scholarship or for some other purpose should contact NDMCA at 701-223-2700.

North Dakota Tax Credit

North Dakota individual taxpayers and North Dakota business are eligible for the North Dakota Charitable Giving Tax Credit, for gifts to a qualified North Dakota nonprofit organization's endowment fund, such as the NDMCA Foundation.

North Dakota Charitable Giving Tax Credit allows for a 40% tax CREDIT for individuals and business who give qualifying gifts to a North Dakota charity. The credit may be carried forward for three additional tax years if it cannot all be used in one year.

For gifts from individuals, the credit is equal to 40 percent of the contribution, up to a maximum credit of $10,000 (or $20,000, if married filing a joint return). To qualify, the contribution(s) to an endowment fund must total at least $5,000 for the tax year. For more information click here.

For gifts from business (other than a sole proprietorship), the credit is equal to 40% of the contribution, up to a maximum credit of $10,000. For more information click here.

These tax benefits are in addition to any federal tax benefits.

This unique tax credit applies to cash gifts or to planned or deferred gifts (e.g., charitable trusts, gift annuities, life insurance policies, etc.) to a qualified ND charitable nonprofit or a qualified ND endowment.

Because the NDMCA Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, your gift is tax-deductible.


Although gifts of cash are most common, there are various and equally important ways to support the Foundation in its educational efforts. The NDMCA Foundation greatly appreciates all gifts, regardless of size.  For more information on how to make a donation to the Foundation, or to request a scholarship application, please call 701-223-2700.
