Wall of Heritage

The Wall of Heritage, crafted by a dear friend of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, recognizes those friends who have made provisions for the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch in their will, life insurance, or by another planned giving instrument. It is located in the Foundation Office at our Minot campus. If you have supported us in any of these ways and would like your name placed on the wall, please call 1-800-344-0957.

Customer Testimonial

It’s good for us to help others who need it. I want my giving to go to an organization that shows people about God, and how God can help you.

Gerry Feichtner, Donor
Customer Testimonial

There is so much power in giving back. People don’t realize that until they’ve experienced it. When you give, you give with hope that you will make a difference.

Customer Testimonial

The Ranch gives children a home, and kindness. You can work with young people, whatever their problems may be, and get them going on the right road again.

Customer Testimonial

All kids have challenges, but some really have tough ones. The Ranch gives these kids something to hold onto—faith, a way of life, a way of working with people—and gets them out of the hole they are in.
