Doland Community Foundation

Building a sustainable asset for the Home of Heroes

Two hands making a heart outside

Founded in 2015 Giving Back to Doland

The Doland Community Foundation was established in 2015 for the sole purpose of creating an endowed fund to build financial resources to assist with capital projects that address community needs and that impact and enhance the quality of community life for residents of all ages.

The Challenge

The volunteer group of leaders who established the Doland Community Foundation also accepted a challenge from the South Dakota Community Foundation to raise $100,000 for their endowment fund. In return, the SDCF will grant them $25,000 toward their perpetual fund. This is where YOU come in. We need Doland residents, alumni, businesses and visitors, to support the Doland Community Foundation. Your contributions are tax deductible and will give back to our community forever.

Applications for grants will be awarded in April and October of every year. The grant application is available by using the link below or from the BASEC office at: 219 Humphrey Drive N. Grant guidelines are also available below. The guidelines help applicants understand DCF’s granting priorities and process. More information is available by contacting a DCF board member or by emailing amy.hofer@basec.org.

If your organization is an IRS verified organization and has a Federal Tax ID Number, your organization will be able to receive a direct DCF grant distribution. If your organization is not an IRS verified organization, it can still be eligible for a DCF grant, but may require some additional documentation upon approval.

Organizations that are awarded grants must complete a brief "Grant Review Form" within 60 days after expenditure of grant funds. A link to that form is below. Failure to submit the Grant Review Form may negatively impact future grant applications.

Please download and save the grant application to your computer and fill it out completely. When completed, email is the preferred method of grant submission; however, mailed applications will be accepted if email is not possible. Email the grant application to amy.hofer@basec.org, or send by US Mail to: Doland Community Foundation, P.O. Box 45, Doland, SD 57436.

Applications must be RECEIVED via email or regular mail no later than March 15 for the April award and September 15 for the October award round. The DCF is not responsible for lost, delayed, or misdirected mail or emails.
