Donations to the North Dakota Trauma Foundation are a vital part in advancing our mission of promoting quality trauma care for ND citizens, advancing trauma education for health care professionals, and promoting trauma prevention and safety for the public. 

Donations support professional trauma education in the state. The NDTF supports the Annual North Dakota State-Wide Trauma Conference for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pre-hospital personnel. donations help to keep the registration fees for the conference low so more health care workers are able to attend. This advanced trauma education for health care professionals will result in optimal care of the injured patient, decreasing morbidity and mortality. 

In addition, donations to the NDTF support yearly grants to emergency medical services and hospitals for education, equipment to care for trauma patients, and injury prevention projects. The committee deciding the grant recipients consists of a surgeon, emergency room physician, emergency room RN, trauma coordinator, hospital administrator, pre-hospital providers, and lay persons. Each year, over $5,000 is granted to various health care facilities and ambulance services, and over $65,000 has been provided in grants to organizations across the state since the program began. In the past years, the funds have been used to provide the Trauma Nursing Core Course and Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support course, and to purchase items such as blood and fluid warmers, immobilization equipment, and crash carts. 

Remember that trauma does not discriminate. Anyone can be a victim at any time. Being better prepared for the worst helps ensure a better outcome. The funds that you donate to the NDTF benefit all of the state’s residents.
