Learn how SDCF supports local communities through community saving accounts.
The real work of bettering South Dakota begins and ends in local communities across the state. A primary way we partner with these communities is through Community Savings Accounts (CSAs).
What is a Community Savings Account?
A CSA is a fund to support basic needs and enhance the quality of life within a community in South Dakota. It is permanently endowed, meaning your gift is never “used up.” With our careful investment, a CSA will steadily grow and support annual awards ensuring the town continues to thrive and prosper for years to come.
All CSAs function as a local foundation. That’s because every CSA has its own local advisory council to raise and distribute funds. The money raised in your community stays in your community.
