South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) recently presented American Bank & Trust with the Hometown Hero award, a tier of their legacy society.

“American Bank & Trust has supported many local and statewide initiatives benefitting their community, employees and customers,” said SDCF President & CEO, Stephanie Judson. “We are grateful to partner with them and recognize their generosity over the years.”

The local bank has contributed to Huron Community Foundation, Wolsey/Wessington Community Foundation and Leadership South Dakota Fund.

SDCF’s Legacy Society honors and recognizes those who have made current and planned gifts to the SDCF. No one knows a community better than those who call it home. Since 1987, SDCF has had the privilege to collaborate with generous people and businesses wanting to give their neighbors a better place to call HOME. Our Hometown Heroes are a special group of people with a passion for helping communities grow and thrive.
