South Dakota Community Foundation
The South Dakota Community Foundation connects generous people and charitable nonprofits throughout the state of South Dakota.
Every day we work to simplify the philanthropic process and make your charitable donations do more. On the one hand, we help donors take advantage of tax benefits, manage their paperwork, and stay on top of philanthropic trends and legal details. On the other, we focus on growing their charitable dollars through careful investments—so their donations can provide long-term support for charitable causes.
We administer approximately $300 million in assets for more than 850 endowed funds. We provide grants and administrative support to nonprofit organizations and serve as a philanthropic resource for donors, advisors, and nonprofits throughout the state.
The SDCF helps a variety of people, but its purpose is singular—to make South Dakota better for all generations, today and tomorrow. Since 1987, we have helped people reach their philanthropic goals and strengthen their communities.
Whether you are just beginning to learn about our mission or have partnered with us for years, we invite you to explore how we are helping to build a stronger future for the state.
