Beresford Community Foundation

Learn about the Beresford Community Foundation

Founded in 1999 Giving Back to Beresford

Welcome to the Beresford Area Foundation website. Even though we are an agent of the SDCF, we are able to accept and administer charitable gifts, give good grants to our local nonprofit groups and organizations, and also give scholarships to hopeful young people from our region. Our volunteer board members work hard to ensure funds are going to groups and organizations that need it most.

The Beresford Area Foundation was created as a not-for-profit tax-exempt organization associated with the South Dakota Community Foundation to serve as a vehicle to create a community savings account to promote the commonwealth of the greater Beresford community. The Foundation’s mission is to create a means to invest the legacy from our past to build a bridge to the future.
