Founded in 2022 Giving Back to Harding County
The Harding County Community Foundation was established in November 2022 with a $100,000 challenge gift from Jim and Janice Clarkson, former residents of Harding County. The communities in the county will work to raise funds of $100,000, which will then be matched with an additional $50,000 from the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF). The Harding County Community Foundation will be the 82nd Community Savings Account (CSA) managed by the SDCF.
Funds raised will be invested with the South Dakota Community Foundation and a percentage will be made available each year for local projects and programs. The CSA will have its own local advisory council to raise and distribute funds.
