South Dakota Community Foundation Giving Tuesday

SDCF to Award $10,000 to Partner Community Savings Accounts and One South Dakota Nonprofit on SD Day of Giving

The 2nd annual SD Day of Giving is almost here!

To celebrate, the South Dakota Community Foundation is excited to give away $10,000 in grant funds to our partner community savings accounts (CSA) and one South Dakota nonprofit. CSAs can participate through the #SDCFGives Challenge

  • We’re giving four grants of $2,000 to CSAs that meet our #SDCFGives challenge requirements that will be drawn on December 3rd—also known as Giving Tuesday.
  • $1,000 of the funds will be invested in the CSA’s endowment with SDCF, and the other $1,000 will be available for the CSA to grant local nonprofits in their next grant cycle.
  • One lucky participating nonprofit, nominated by our CSA partners, will win a $2,000 grant!
