Register for the 2nd Annual SD Day of Giving

Do you want to win $2,000 for your Community Savings Account on SD Day of Giving? Participate in the #SDCFGives Challenge!

The 2nd annual SD Day of Giving is almost here! To celebrate, the South Dakota Community Foundation is excited to give away $10,000 to our partner community savings accounts (CSA) and one South Dakota nonprofit. 

Four (4) grants of $2,000 will be given to partner CSAs regionally that meet the challenge requirements and are drawn on the SD Day of Giving! $1,000 will be invested in the CSA’s endowment with SDCF and $1,000 will be made spendable for the CSA to grant to local nonprofits in their next grant cycle. We will end the day with one (1) $2,000 grant being awarded to a South Dakota nonprofit drawn from nonprofits nominated by our CSA partners.
