#ForSouthDakota

For the first time ever, nonprofits and communities from across the state are uniting to celebrate generosity in the great state of South Dakota. Mark your calendars now to participate in South Dakota Day of Giving on #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018.

Together, we're going to raise as much money as humanly possible in 24-hours. And have a heck of a lot of fun doing it. 

 
Giving is important to anything good you want for your community. When we show up and give, it is human nature at its best, whether that is monetary or time.

Lasso in some prize money

Nonprofits who signed-up to participate in South Dakota Day of Giving through the South Dakota Gives website are eligible to win prize money from the South Dakota Prize Pool. The prize money is made possible thanks to individuals, businesses and foundations interested in spreading generosity across our state through our first-ever giving day. 

 
 
I’ve seen generosity in the people of South Dakota... and it is strong. People in communities are having a conversation about generosity in a different way. This giving day has the opportunity to encourage that even more.
