Black Hills area non profits receive grant money
Eight area non profits Thursday received grant money from the South Dakota Community Foundation.
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Through three different grant programs, the South Dakota Community Foundation was able to award $95,000 dollars, celebrating the good work the groups do and supporting their missions.
The foundation has been in operation for 32 years and works with donors, organizations and communities to raise and invest funds and give the money away to non profit and charitable organizations in the state.
Stephanie Judson, president of the South Dakota Community Foundation, says, “We really want to be a link between objectives that donors want to accomplish and the great work that various non profits in our state are doing. So by calling the non profits today, allowing them to talk about the work that our grant will support, will hopefully encourage other donors to join them in supporting that mission.”
Area non profits receiving money today were Catholic Social Services, Historic Homestake Opera House, Black Hills Playhouse, Black Hills Special Services Cooperative, Chamber Music Festival of the Black Hills, Mniluzahan Okalakicipayi Ambassadors, Rural America Initiatives and Youth and Family Services.
The South Dakota Hall of Fame recently raised $80,000 over a two year period and received challenge grant of $20,000 (which was included in the $95,000).
