annually to support nonprofit and charitable causes.Rather than funding projects and programs, Bush designed the Community Innovation Grants to help organizations and communities "look at solutions to issues in a way that may be different from how they've addressed those issues in the past," Judson said.The smaller grants from the SDCF's Community Involvement program will help organizations not yet ready for the higher funding levels.Beth Davis directs Dakota Resources, a statewide nonprofit that stimulates financial and human investment in rural communities. Dakota Resources works with those communities to help implement new solutions and innovations.One focus is the housing crisis in rural communities."We stopped building homes in rural South Dakota in the 1970s, and that's getting in the way of communities' abilities to recruit nurses, teachers and bank tellers.

were matched in less than a year, allowing the SDCF to start with a $10 million endowment.The SDCF is not a government entity, but rather a resource to make philanthropic donations that could benefit the state, Judson said. One of the foundation's arms, the South Dakota Fund, grew from $10 million to the current balance of more than $17 million. In addition, more than $15 million in grants have been awarded from that pool since 1989.The SDCF also manages 650 funds in community savings accounts, scholarship funds, donor advised funds, designated funds and agency endowment funds. Those total about $165 million in assets and award about $5 million White Converse High Tops Womens Amazon

´╗┐Grant might help area nonprofit groups

A new partnership will give South Dakota nonprofits a greater opportunity for grant money to find solutions to community issues.The Bush Foundation of St. Paul this year presented the South Dakota Community Foundation with $225,000 in new funding. In turn, the SDCF will award grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 in three separate rounds, with the first round of applications already open.For nonprofits such as the South Dakota Budget and Policy Institute, such a grant would give director Joy Smolnisky the opportunity to launch new programs on a smaller basis and perhaps expand permanently. She wants to tailor her nonpartisan public education on the state budget process to various groups, such as college age adults and Native Americans. If it's successful, it could be replicated across the state."We were going to go to Bush and ask for two year funding, but that's a big ask for an idea we Converse High Cut Red haven't tested," Smolnisky said. "Smaller grants will allow us to beta test an idea, and we could try one or two communities through the Community Foundation and Bush.""What's interesting about this program is it really is going to augment the unrestricted grants we award from the South Dakota Fund," said Stephanie Judson, the SDCF president. "This program will work in conjunction with our existing grant making programs of the last 26 years."The SDCF started in 1987 after challenge grants were issued by the McKnight Foundation and 3M to support the establishment of a statewide community foundation.

There's not a lot of workforce housing in these communities, much less homes for a new manager or a doctor higher salaried professionals."The new grants fit in particularly nicely with Dakota Resources' efforts at community engagement, allowing a town's residents to identify what they care about most."We're very excited about the innovation grant possibility," Davis said. "It will allow local communities to at least come up with the match. Those who work with Dakota Resources are required to come up with local dollars."The first of three rounds of grants concludes in late May with awards announced in late June. The other rounds begin June 1 and Sept. 1."We're very honored to be partnering with (Bush)," Judson said. "We're hoping this is the start of a long term relationship. Bush has funded other programs in the past, and we're optimistic they will continue this effort.".
