As a community member, we help you give back to the towns you’ve called home through Community Savings Accounts (CSA). A CSA is a fund to support basic needs and enhance the quality of life within a community in South Dakota. It is permanently endowed meaning your gift is never “used up.” With our careful investment, a town’s CSA will continue to grow and support annual awards in perpetuity ensuring the town continues to thrive and prosper for years to come.
All CSAs, regardless of size, act and feel like their own local foundation. That’s because every CSA has its own local board of directors to raise and distribute funds. The money raised in your community, stays in your community.
