South Dakota Hall of Fame building

The South Dakota Community Foundation congratulates the South Dakota Hall of Fame on recently raising $80,000 for their organization from supporters over a two-year period. The organization was rewarded for their efforts with an additional $20,000 challenge grant from the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF). The combined funds resulted in the establishment of a $100,000 endowment fund at the SDCF for this nonprofit. Funds will be invested overtime and earnings will create a long-term revenue source to support the organization.

 “The South Dakota Community Foundation is committed to strengthening nonprofits in our state through the power of endowment,” says Stephanie Judson, SDCF president. “The Nonprofit Savings Account (NSA) program allows the SDCF to bolster fundraising efforts that build endowment funds, which help nonprofits thrive today and long into the future. We congratulate all those involved in helping the South Dakota Hall of Fame successfully meet this challenge.”
