Welcome COCO

By URL Radio

Coalition of Charitable OrganizationURL Radio would like to welcome COCO to the family. COCO (Coalition of Charitable Organization), is a group of regional nonprofits coming together in support of common goals. The group was formed in 1996. Since their creation, COCO has promoted the idea of philanthropy and giving in Southwestern North Dakota.

COCO has grown yearly to now include close to 20 non-profits, from ABLE to West River Health Services Foundation. The key to why this group has continued to operate, is because they understand the importance of their mission and promoting education. This group realizes that working together is a benefit to each individual nonprofit and their work plays a pivotal role in the quality of life in the communities they serve.

The group has recently identified the following goals to promote their mission:

  • Promote philanthropy and giving in Southwestern North Dakota
  • Sponsor the Philanthropist of the Year Award
  • Provide education for nonprofits to increase their capacity building
  • Serve as a resource for educational opportunities in North Dakota
  • Provide networking and support for nonprofit members
  • Build collaborative relationships with allied professionals
  • Distribute a Planned Giving Brochure for allied professionals and donors which contains information on COCO nonprofit members and gifting opportunities

To find out more information regarding COCO, their members, or having your nonprofit join, please contact amanda.moser@dickinsonstate.edu, who will connect you with the board of directors for the organization.
