Ways to Earn Prize Money
While the first-ever state-wide South Dakota Day of Giving has come to an end that doesn’t mean it’s over! There are still opportunities to win prizes until the end of the week.
Thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses, and community members, nonprofits participating can win the following prizes.
Prizes to be awarded
100 percent! On Facebook or Twitter, celebrate the fact that 100 percent of your board members have pledged to support your organization on South Dakota Day of Giving with a financial gift. Just post the following after you have the full commitment of your board: “Wahoo! All of our board members have pledged to make a gift to us on South Dakota Day of Giving. Will you join us?” (Be sure to tag #ForSouthDakota @forsouthdakota and include a link to your profile on the South Dakota Gives website). One organization will randomly receive a match of their board member’s commitments—up to $5,000.
