About Us

The Sisseton Area Foundation was created in 2002 to provide financial support to charitable and nonprofit purposes in the Sisseton area.  The board accepted a challenge to raise $75,000.  Thanks to generous supports, and a dedicated board of directors, the challenge was met, and the Sisseton Area Foundation received a $25,000 grant from the SDCF.  Over $123,000 has been donated to the Sisseton Area Foundation allowing for $36,800 to be given back in grants to nonprofit groups and organizations.
