Founded in 2009 Giving Back to Tyndall

Mission Statement

The sole purpose of the Tyndall Community Foundation is to support the general welfare of the Tyndall community.

History of the Tyndall Community Foundation

The Tyndall Community Foundation was formed in 2009 when a group of local leaders accepted a challenge from South Dakota Community Foundation to raise $100,000. In return, they would receive $25,000 toward a perpetual endowment fund for their community. With the help of a volunteer advisory council and the generosity of local residents, the Tyndall Community Foundation met the challenge. Today, the board has given back nearly $70,000 in grants to the community and continues to help the fund grow.

Important facts to know when gifting crops:

1) Gift should happen after crop is harvested – not before
2) Gift should be transferred through a deed of gift of tangible personal property- See Bill of Sale Form
3) Since crops are tangible personal property and the charitable deduction would be limited to the basis, there is no charitable deduction for the gift, but the farmer avoids the RECOGNITION OF INCOME
4) The crop should be titled and sold in the South Dakota Community Foundation’s name. The gift amount is sent directly to South Dakota Community Foundation-referencing the Tyndall Community Foundation as benefiting.
