Founded in 2006 Giving Back to the Blunt area

In 2006, Dakota State Bank in Blunt, along with other passionate individuals and businesses, came together to start the Dakota State Bank Blunt Area Foundation. A challenge was issued by the South Dakota Community Foundation that year to the community. They were asked to raise $45,000 in order to receive a $15,000 matching grant from SDCF. They completed that challenge in 2013. In 2016, Dakota State Bank merged with First Dakota National Bank, and the name was changed from Dakota State Bank Blunt Area Foundation to First Dakota National Bank Area Foundation.


The First Dakota National Bank Area Foundation has distributed $9,500 in grants back to the Blunt community. To find out more about how you can apply for grant funding, please contact us.
