Bringing philanthropy to life for a stronger South Dakota. 2023 Annual Report

Dear Friends,

Within these pages, we share our 2023 Annual Report. We are grateful to feature stories of impact, compassion and giving back from the last year.

In 2022, I shared our goal to raise $3.5 million toward the Vision 35 Fund. I’m excited to announce SDCF met this goal in 2023. The impact from this effort will be realized for many years to come. Thank you for your generosity toward ensuring challenge matches are forever available to community leaders and nonprofits, enabling them to grow local charitable dollars. Learn more about Vision 35 on page 4.

In addition to fulfilling the dream of endowing nonprofit challenge dollars, SDCF was excited to offer Bush Prize: South Dakota. This award celebrates organizations that are highly valued within their communities and have a track record of successful community problem solving. After much deliberation, two winners were announced in October. Congratulations Black Hills Special Services Corporation and Lost&Found! You can learn more about their impactful work on page 28.

As my term as SDCF Chairperson ends, I send my heartfelt gratitude to each of you, our partner donors, nonprofits, community leaders and advisors. It has been my honor to serve in this capacity and be part of such a highly impactful organization for South Dakota. Although my official tenure may be ending, my commitment to SDCF remains unwavering.

Through your giving spirit, SDCF will continue to create a legacy for nonprofits and communities across our state.


Doug Sharp, SDCF Board Chair
