It all depends on you.

Anyone, regardless of wealth or position, can make a difference. If you are able to give, there are many reasons to partner with the SDCF:

  • Lasting. Your charitable wishes will be carried out in present and future generations because of our careful investment strategies.
  • Trust. Gifts will always be administered in accordance with your wishes.
  • Experience. Our professional staff and board of directors will work hard for you and our state.
  • Effectiveness. Pooling gifts with other funds at the SDCF allows for opportunities to generate a higher rate of return on your gift—allowing it to reach more people.
  • Flexibility. You can make contributions anytime and to charitable causes of your choice.
  • Recognition. Unless you choose to be anonymous, your name will be honored forever.
  • Tax Advantage. You'll receive the maximum tax benefit from a gift to the SDCF.

Our team is immersed, every day, in the world of charitable giving, and we share that knowledge with our donors. We report on areas of need. We give you context for larger charitable efforts. We even help you find other donors who share your goals and interests.

Find the right way to give

We'll connect you with the type of fund that best achieves your charitable goals. All SDCF funds are permanently endowed—meaning the principal of your gift is invested. Then earnings are made available to support the charitable causes you choose.  Giving a charitable gift through a fund at the SDCF ensures the impact of your gift endures for generations.
