Create new possibilities.

Nonprofits across the state are working to solve problems and create a better future for the people of South Dakota. Creating a fund with the SDCF allows these nonprofits to continue doing good for years to come and lets your clients leave a lasting impact or remember a lost loved one.

Plus, they’ll receive tax advantages by donating through us. Because we are a community foundation, donors receive the maximum tax benefit from a donation. In addition, no tax is imposed on investment income because of the SDCF’s public-charity status.

We pride ourselves on the number of funds we already manage. If your client is interested in starting a new fund with us, we invite them to first take a look at the existing funds to see if anything matches their interests. Within an existing fund, it is possible to memorialize a donation or honor a family by name through the establishment of a subfund that meets their giving goals. If an existing fund does not match your client's interests, the SDCF will work to create a new fund customized to fulfill their charitable vision. 

Next steps:

  • Meet and discuss giving options.
  • Review and sign a fund agreement tailored to your clients charitable goals.
  • Donate to their newly-created fund and leave a lasting legacy.
