35 Years of Bringing Philanthropy to Life

Celebrating our past and transformation for the future.

Since 1987, the South Dakota Community Foundation has been bringing philanthropy to life for a stronger South Dakota. Join us this year in celebrating our 35th anniversary--the foundation built, the bricks laid, the impact made and the legacies created.

Our story lies with the generous donors and advisors who trust us, the nonprofits who invest with us and the communities who partner with us. This story is far from over as we look forward to our next 35 years of transformation.
