Hail! South Dakota!

As the state continues to change and encounter new challenges, the South Dakota Fund stands ready to quickly meet vital and emerging needs within communities. Your gift will fund new dreams and foster growth in education, culture, health, human services, and economic development in this great state.

Nonprofits can submit grant applications directly to the South Dakota Fund allowing us to support nonprofit organizations and work across South Dakota. The recipients of grants are selected by our own board of directors, giving us the ability to respond nimbly to grant requests within the state.
