So, the legislature has just Policy in Durbin, N..D. BISMARCK, N.D. -- Proposed federal action would make church- es and charities as partisan as every other institution in the country. As rep- resentatives of the broad nonprofit and philanthropic communities in our state, we believe that such action would have severe, negative consequences for our work. Indeed, the North Dakota Association of Nonprofit Organ- izations (NDANO) and the North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF) stand together, along with other nonprofits and foundations across our state, in support of nonprofit nonpartisanship. Together we oppose any federal legislation or executive action that would repeal or weaken existing law that prohibits charitable nonprofits, religious congregations and foundations from endorsing or opposing candidates for elective office, also known as the Johnson Amendment. Nonpartisanship is critical to the ability ofnonprofits, churches and foun- dations to work with elected officials of all parties at the local, state and federal levels to address community needs throughout North Dakota. Non- profits are apolitical spaces in our communities, designed to be removed from the political fray, a place where people come together to solve com- munity problems. NDANO and NDCF believe'current law requiring charitable nonprofits and the public, preventing charitable contributions from being diverted to political campaigns, thus allowing nonprofits to focus on solving problems, helping our neighbors and enriching our communities. We ask Sen. Ho- even, Sen. Heitkamp and Rep. Cramer to maintain the Johnson Amend- ment. Keeping nonprofits nonpartisan is the right thing for our state and our country.

Tours of the newly refurbished cabins and dining hall, and the newly constructed Johnsrud 4-H Education Center and cabins will be a highlight of the celebration. "The renovation and building project was completed through the gen- erous contributions of a number of private donors, along with a state ap- propriation," says Brad Cogdill, chair of the NDSU Center for 4-H Youth Development. "These improvements have enhanced the camp's learning environment, increased the camp's capacity to accommodate larger youth groups, provided access to people of all abilities, and helps ensure a sustainable, environmentally responsible camp program." The North Dakota 4-H Camp was established in 1967 as the Western North Dakota 4-H Camp, one of two regional 4-H camps. It has become the sole statewide 4-H camp facility. Its location is historically significant. The 84-acre facility is along the banks of the Missouri River near Fort Mandan, where explorers Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery spent the winter of 1804. The celebration also is a fundraiser for the camp. The cost for attend- ing the event Saturday, Aug. 19, is $75 per person, and for both days, the cost is $125 per person. The registration deadline is July 31. For more information or registration details, visit the North Dakota 4- H Foundation's website for this event at http://www.ndsu.edu/4h/reunion or call the North Dakota 4-H Foundation at 701-231-8569. 4-H is the largest and only research-based youth organization in the state. Although the camp has 4-H in its name, its programs are open to all youth.
