A Foundation for Progress Roots are unsung heroes. They run deep. They give us strength. But they’re rarely seen and seldom celebrated. The South Dakota Community Foundation plays a significant part in helping the state grow. We have a long history of helping out our neighbors – we’ve worked to simplify and maximize South Dakotans’ contributions since 1987. Investments made with us deepen the roots within our communities – donors receive the maximum tax benefit, and they’re rewarded with the knowledge that their gifts will be lasting and effective. Our mission is to share our resources to help donors and nonprofit organizations in our state get the most out of their efforts. To help South Dakotans. Because that’s who we are.

Leadership Report “Civilization flourishes when people plant trees under which they will never sit.” — Greek Proverb A tree stands in the front yard of my family farm. Growing up, I could look over the top of that oak tree from the picture window and see for miles. Today, that tree towers over the farm house. Its branches spreading out over the yard. It has survived blistering heat, gusting winds, early frosts and even a lightning strike. I can sit under that tree today, enjoying its shade, because since it was planted that tree has been quietly spreading it roots. Its strong root system has kept it steadfast and will ensure it thrives for decades to come. Leaders who believed in providing for South Dakota’s future planted a seedling of their own when they established the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF). Throughout the last twenty-eight years, generous donors like you have nurtured and cared for that little tree. With your support, the tree has grown, its roots have spread and every day, South Dakotans are benefiting from all it provides. The benefits of its shade are stretching to cover more South Dakotans each year. For instance, the SDCF expanded giving options for donors by launching Growing for Good, our land management program. This program allows farm and ranch land to stay in production and provide a legacy of support for generations to come. The Growing for Good program complements our existing giving options which include both cash and noncash gifts. The SDCF’s grantmaking strategies have branched out to strengthen nonprofit organizations. In 2015, we established the Nonprofit Savings Account (NSA) program to help organizations develop a broader base of support and build endowed assets to help fund their missions, now and long into the future. We also began a partnership with the Grantmakers in Aging organization to provide grants aimed at keeping older, rural South Dakotans in their homes. Along with our South Dakota Fund Grants and the Community Innovation Grant partnership with the Bush Foundation, we have expanded the grantmaking opportunities across the state. Thank you for being a part of this stewardship effort. We appreciate your investment in nonprofit causes. Your generosity enriches the soil and allows us to continue spreading our roots. As a result, our organization stands strong and promises to shade not only us, but also our children and grandchildren, who will plant trees of their own.

Leadership Report

Jim Hart Board Chairman

Our History The South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) was created as a public, nonprofit corporation on November 11, 1987, as part of the late Governor George S. Mickelson’s vision for South Dakota’s second century. To establish the SDCF, the McKnight Foundation and 3M Corporation issued a $5 million challenge grant to the state of South Dakota. The grant memorialized the life of South Dakota native William L. McKnight, a former CEO of the 3M Corporation and founder of the McKnight Foundation. The state of South Dakota committed $2 million, and within twelve months, SDCF leadership raised the additional $3 million from private donors to fulfill the challenge grant. Today, the SDCF, a public, nonprofit organization, holds approximately $219 million in total assets and manages 760 endowed funds. The earning from those funds support charitable needs and causes throughout the state. With the continued generosity of South Dakotans and solid investment returns, the SDCF will continue to serve individuals, families and communities across the state for generations to come.

Investing in South Dakota’s Future

The South Dakota Community Foundation’s Objective The aim of the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) is to make giving back simple and effective by providing trustworthy guidance and investment management to South Dakotans who want to benefit communities and charitable organizations.

How the giving process works:

Where your donations can go:

When you establish a fund at the SDCF, the principal of your charitable donation is invested. Each year, a percentage of your fund’s value is made available for distribution through grants to charitable causes. As investment returns accumulate, the fund can continue to impact South Dakotans forever. We put the power of endowment to work for good.

We work with you, your family and/or your financial advisor to make giving to causes you care about a seamless process. We offer a variety of fund types to meet your charitable goals. For example, you can designate specific charitable organizations, set up a scholarship for local students, support your local community savings account or make a broad impact on culture, economic development, education, health and human services.

What you can give:

Who we serve in addition to donors:

You can donate a variety of assets to benefit others. We accept:

A Nonprofit Savings Account Grant at Work

The Sioux YMCA in Dupree provides a fun, safe and supportive environment for youth.

Teen Challenge of the Dakotas (TCD), one of our NSA partners, believes a person with life-controlling problems can change, IF that person wants to change. TCD offers a residential program for adult males over 18 years of age. The 16-month program assists men in overcoming addiction and transitioning back into the “real” world. After 50 years of helping drug and criminal offenders, Teen Challenge has earned a reputation as one of America’s most successful rehabilitation programs. Over the past five years, TCD significantly enhanced its infrastructure and capacity through the construction of its new campus and the renovation of its former facility. Upon successful completion of the NSA Challenge Grant, the TCD endowment will extend these efforts to ensure maximum mission impact now and into the future.

The South Dakota Humanities Council supports the Young Readers Initiative, which puts high quality books in the hands of elementary students and brings them face-to-face with authors at the Young Readers Festival of Books.

Reverend Mike Gilmartin, a past graduate and executive director of TCD, understands the importance of an endowment in continuing to provide quality programming to men from communities throughout the region. Key donors have already expressed interest in helping Mike and TCD build an endowment, so he is thankful for the encouragement from the SDCF to solicit endowed gifts.

“Working with the staff at the South Dakota Community Foundation has been absolutely great. Since I walked into the SDCF offices, out of the blue, a number of years ago; they have done nothing except encourage and help to empower myself and TCD for success. I am truly grateful for the relationship.” — Reverend Mike Gilmartin

greater good. We talk about trying to help the less fortunate, trying to make the world a better place.”

An Expanding Vision Harry Knapp was another early believer in the CSA concept in Day County. He challenged community leaders to establish the Day County Community Foundation with an anonymous matching gift. Harry and his wife Denice were also the first Day County residents to start a SDCF donor advised fund. Their family fund began by giving grants to students attending the SDSU College of Engineering. Then, the Knapps realized their impact could be greater than just one school. “The more involved you get, the more needs you will find you can partially or wholly meet through grants,” said Denice. “We had decided that we wanted to include other causes within the communities of Day County.”

DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Donors in Day County Shine Bright Individuals Come Together to Benefit All

Shortly after Tom Sannes moved back to Webster in 2001 to start a career as an attorney, he was invited to a meeting with Bernie Christenson, the SDCF president at the time, and area leaders to discuss the possibility of starting a Community Savings Account (CSA). At the meeting, when Tom heard the SDCF would offer a $25,000 grant if the community could raise $75,000, he was the first to speak: “Hey, that’s a no brainer. Let’s do it!” Little did he know, that proclamation and the creation of the CSA would propel him, and the communities of Day County, into the start of something great.

A Homegrown Volunteer Born and raised in Webster, Tom Sannes graduated from Webster High School in 1989. Service was a key part of his life, whether as a member of the Boy Scouts or a legislative page.

“Public service just fits for me. I can’t say when I came up with that idea, but it’s just something I firmly believe in. A service-minded attitude for the greater good. That’s my philosophy,” said Tom. Tom is associated with most of the service groups and nonprofit organizations in and around Webster. In addition to being the president of the Day County Community Foundation, he is a member of the Webster Alumni Association, vice president of the Webster Area Development Corporation and president of the United Methodist Church in Webster. He was also chairman of the Webster Aquatic Venture for Excellence and was selected as the 2014 Citizen of the Year by the Webster Area Chamber of Commerce. “Every time I sit down to chat with a client about their estate plan, or a board of directors about the future of the group, we talk about ideas that are more than just the law,” said Tom. “We talk about the

“We started our giving focused on one area, and then expanded what we do,” added Harry. “It was nice to have that flexibility.” They expanded their focus by partnering with the Day County Community Foundation. This partnership allows them to make grant recommendations during their lifetimes. Upon their passing, their daughters, followed by their grandchildren, will make grant recommendations. Then, the Day County Community Foundation’s local board of directors will take over administration of the fund. “We appreciate the fact that investment management and administrative tasks are handled by the SDCF. We can focus on the needs that exist and causes we care about,” Harry said.

A Plan for Giving As time went on, Tom Sannes recognized that the desire of donors like the Knapps to give back to Day County communities through subfunds would not only meet the needs of donors, but also create future assets for the county’s nonprofit projects and programs. “The first part is to determine if an individual has the interest in leaving something to charity,” said Tom. “Once they decide they want to do so, they are then looking for a vehicle. That’s where the SDCF comes into play.”

Tom acknowledges that many people know what they would like their money to do, but need to be given some direction about the available giving vehicles. For example, when Tom sat down with Gerald Sletten to discuss his estate plan, Tom found a very savvy individual with big ideas for his hometown. Gerald wanted his money to be available long after he was gone, so a partnership with the Day County Community Foundation made sense for Gerald. Won over by the low cost of administration and the long-term outlook, Gerald started the Gerald M. and Mary Sletten Fund through an estate gift. The fund is now dedicated to giving grants to the Bristol area at the recommendation of the Day County Community Foundation board of directors. “The low 1% administration fee is a huge selling point for many people I talk to,” said Tom. “The staff and board at the SDCF are also a big factor. They lend a lot of credibility and trust to the organization. And finally, the success of funds already held with the SDCF and diversity of partnership options that exist really makes a difference. People can make a connection with so many of the funds held there, be it scholarship funds or CSAs. They can pick many areas to be involved.” Today, the partnership between the South Dakota Community Foundation, the Day County Community Foundation and local donors is working to improve the lives of area residents. Day County has 21 funds totaling $1.35 million working for local nonprofit organizations, communities and students. Over the past 14 years, these funds have awarded $155,000 to area nonprofit organizations. Area residents have come together to ensure that Day County continues to thrive for future generations.

“If we put aside any rivalry between towns and pull together, the future is very bright for Day County. Whether you have a general desire to support the community at large or a more specific goal, the Day County Community Foundation and the South Dakota Community Foundation is a natural fit.” — Harry Knapp

Community Innovation Grants

Today’s changing community needs and complex challenges require creative thinking and new approaches. That is why the Bush Foundation partnered with the SDCF to support nonprofits that are leading the way in community innovation in South Dakota. The grants help nonprofits address a need in a community by increasing collective understanding of the issue, generating ideas and implementing solutions. These steps, which may be repeated, eventually lead to a breakthrough in addressing a community need that is more effective, equitable or sustainable than existing approaches. In 2015, the SDCF awarded $400,000 in Community Innovation Grants to 42 nonprofit and charitable organizations to carry out inclusive, collaborative and sustainable solutions. The SDCF received 102 applications with requests totaling more than $940,000.

the original investment will be repaid at the end of 11 years. The $2 million program-related investment is also the largest one-time funding outflow for a single project in the SDCF’s 28-year history. The SDCF’s leadership saw this opportunity as a way to leverage the foundation’s resources to support significant economic development in the state.

Pictured are (left to right): Jim Hart, chair of the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) Board of Directors; Stephanie Judson, president of the SDCF; Mike Headley, executive director of the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority (SDSTA); Casey Peterson, chair of the SDSTA Board of Directors; and Ron Wheeler, vice chair of the SDSTA Board of Directors.

GRANT RECIPIENT SPOTLIGHT

Sanford Lab: A $2 Million Investment in South Dakota’s Future SDCF Investment Supports Economic Development In September 2015, the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) Board of Directors decided to take an unprecedented step to support economic development in the state. The SDCF responded to the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority’s (SDSTA) request for a $2 million programrelated investment to help kick start LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ), the next-generation dark matter detector.

of liquid xenon and will increase the opportunity to discover dark matter by a magnitude of 30. The LZ experiment is estimated to run from 2018 to 2026.

“The foundation’s investment in this project will help the U.S. keep a science-leadership role in the global competition to detect dark matter,” said Mike Headley, executive director of the SDSTA. The LZ experiment is the successor dark matter experiment to LUX (Large Underground Xenon), which is currently operating on the 4850 Level of the Sanford Lab. LUX, which has a third of a ton of liquid xenon at its core, is the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world today. LZ, the nextgeneration dark matter detector, will have 10 tons

LUX was installed inside a 72,000 gallon water tank. This tank will also be used for the LZ detector.

A Pioneering Investment The program-related investment works differently than the grants the SDCF typically distributes to nonprofits, because

“The program-related investment is a new way to carry out the original mission set in 1987 by the late Governor Mickelson, myself and fellow members of the first South Dakota Community Foundation Board of Directors,” said Jim Hart, current SDCF board chairman. “The South Dakota Community Foundation has been tasked with investing in programs that benefit the social and economic well-being of the people of South Dakota, and helping to launch the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment at Sanford Lab will do just that.” The SDCF is providing critical funding to the SDSTA to help ensure that the next phase of research, already approved by the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, happens here in South Dakota and brings millions of dollars in positive economic impact with it.

A Newsworthy Event The public announcement of the partnership was made at the SDSTA’s board meeting in Lead on September 17, 2015. The event drew widespread attention from the local media. SDCF President Stephanie Judson was interviewed by KEVN, KNBN and KOTA television. The Rapid City Journal and other area newspapers also reported on the partnership.

Although the program-related investment was non-traditional, the South Dakota Community Foundation offers a variety of grant opportunities to South Dakota nonprofits each year. Grants support community innovation, education programs, health services and more.

$1 Million Grant Threshold Exceeded in Pennington County

At the close of 2015, the South Dakota Community Foundation paused to celebrate the great work Pennington County charitable organizations accomplished with the help of the SDCF’s South Dakota Fund. The South Dakota Fund has addressed ever-changing needs in the area through 108 grants totaling $1.1 million. The South Dakota Fund is an unrestricted grant program, which supports culture, economic development, education, health and human services. The endowed assets of the South Dakota Fund are invested in perpetuity and provide approximately $500,000 in annual support to nonprofits across the state. Throughout the SDCF’s history, every county in the state has received at least one South Dakota Fund grant. Pennington County is the second county to exceed the $1 million grant threshold. The SDCF’s impact on Pennington County goes beyond South Dakota Fund grants. The SDCF also administers 36 funds for Pennington County residents and organizations totaling more than $10 million. Distributions from these funds have accounted for another $1.6 million in grants to nonprofit causes in Pennington county. The SDCF applauds the work of Pennington County nonprofits and looks forward to supporting them for years to come.

“The South Dakota Community Foundation helped fund the startup of the Rapid City Crisis Care Center that now helps nearly 2,000 people per year experiencing a mental health or substance abuse crisis. We are fortunate to have as a partner, the South Dakota Community Foundation, as together we build positive change in the communities in which we live, work and play.” – Alan Solano, CEO of Rapid City Crisis Care Center.

Community Savings Accounts HELPING COMMUNITIES THRIVE & PROSPER

The SDCF has partnered with 72 communities across South Dakota to form Community Savings Accounts (CSA). A CSA provides current, past and future residents with the opportunity to give back to the town they call home. These funds are invested with the SDCF and as the fund grows, so does the amount available to give back. A local board of directors distributes available funds to nonprofits through grants to meet the needs of the community. As a result, the money raised in the community stays in the community.

How has your board utilized subfunds to increase the impact of your Community Savings Account?

We have 17 separate funds under the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation umbrella. Our donors appreciate the fact that these will be perpetual funds. Their money will benefit a project, organization or scholarship near and dear to their heart for many years to come.

Foundation while doing estate planning, tax planning, memorializing a loved one or just looking for a good place to give. We think a good motto is “Give till it feels good!” A donation to the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving.

What are some of the board of directors’ favorite moments in First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation’s history? First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation Board Members. Pictured are front row (left to right): Chuck Keiser, Bill Matousek, Judy Benson, Rita Neyens, Dawn Covey, Lynnelle Anderson, and Gary Fenenga.

CSA SPOTLIGHT

A Conversation with a Community Savings Account Leader First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation

Dawn Covey joined the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation Board of Directors in 2009. Since moving to Tripp County from northeast South Dakota in 1985, Dawn has developed a great appreciation for the area, its communities and its residents. She shared with us how the work of the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation, one of the South Dakota Community Foundation’s Community Savings Accounts (CSA), is influencing Tripp County communities. Why do you enjoy living in Tripp County and volunteering with the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation?

I have lived in Tripp County longer than any place in my life and am proud to call it home. I appreciate this area for its wide-open space, mild climate and especially the great community-minded people that live here. I am starting my 30th year with First Fidelity Bank in Winner. The Lillibridge family started seven branches of First Fidelity Banks in south-central South Dakota and established a Community Savings Account in each of them. I appreciate the commitment to community expressed by the Lillibridge family and the encouragement they give their employees to be active in our communities. Because of my work with the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation, I have experienced, firsthand, the generosity of area residents. I have observed unselfish donations of time and resources. These experiences fuel my desire to see our foundation’s growth continue.

The First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation helped to finance the development of the Winner Community Pool.

Why do you feel community members choose to support the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation with their hard-earned dollars?

The visual results of projects supported by First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation are our best promotion. Families have witnessed others memorialized by scholarships administered through our foundation, which has triggered them to do the same for their loved ones. You can also look around the community and see where grant funds have been put to use and this creates a desire for others to contribute to the foundation.

C O M M U N I T I E S | A Conversation with a Community Savings Account Leader

Board member Chuck Keiser remembers when Ray Petersek came to the board with a vision of making a Veterans Memorial in front of the Tripp County Courthouse in Winner. His vision included a memorial naming all of the past, present and future veterans on granite pillars. Tripp County Courthouse Veterans Memorial

The cost of the project was estimated to be approximately $95,000. The board indicated it would fund $10,000 of the project if he was able to raise the balance. Ray went to work and with the assistance of longtime foundation chairman, Bill Matousek, came up with the necessary funds. We now have a beautiful and very patriotic Veterans Memorial in front of the Tripp County Courthouse. What should Tripp County residents know about this CSA?

Past chairpersons Keith Goodhope and Bill Matousek, especially, deserve so much credit for the success of the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation today. They gave our community something to build on, and few surpass the dedication that these two men have for their home county. We are fortunate that we have five of the founding board members still serving today — Chuck Keiser, Gary Fenenga, Barry Grossenburg, Bill Matousek and Judy Benson. We are grateful for their 21 years of service. I would also like them to know that the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation, and our 17 affiliated funds, have given in excess of $331,000 to community groups since 1995. Our board members are committed to being good stewards of these funds and have a strong desire to make Tripp County a better place to live, work and play. What Challenges exist for the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation moving forward?

We need to be sure that potential donors think about the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community

Ray Neyens Jr. and Grace Neyens present the Ray & Grace Neyens scholarship to student Ashley Meiners.

Pictured are (left to right): Barry Grossenburg, Bill Matousek, Gene Grossenburg and Charlie Grossenburg. The Grossenburg family is a strong supporter of the First Fidelity Bank & Tripp County Community Foundation. Recently, the Grossenburg Family & Employees Fund set up a challenge grant of $30,000 a year over five years. The Grossenburg family contributed an additional $10,000 at the end of each year when the goal was met. Overall, the Grossenburg family contributed $100,000 as part of the five-year challenge.

Join the Legacy Society at the South Dakota Community Foundation

F I N A N C I A L S | Giving Back Forever

The Legacy Society honors those who have made arrangements for future, end-of-life gifts to the SDCF.

What types of gifts can I make? BEQUESTS Through a bequest in your will, you can establish a new fund honoring your family’s legacy or make your gift to the South Dakota Fund, which awards grants to charitable and nonprofit causes across South Dakota. LIFE INCOME GIFTS Establishing a charitable gift annuity, a charitable lead trust or a charitable remainder trust allows you to receive income for life and provides a future gift to the SDCF. Not only will you receive a stream of income for life, but you can also generally bypass capital gains on the sale of property and receive a charitable deduction. REAL ESTATE Land or other property you own that has a very low cost basis often generates significant capital gains tax when sold or transferred. Gifting all or a portion of property to charitable interests through the SDCF allows you to reduce or effectively eliminate capital gains and estate tax. A variety of giving options exist, including retaining a life estate in the property gifted, allowing the SDCF to sell your property and add the

proceeds to your endowed fund, or choosing to have the SDCF hold and manage your property and distribute a portion of the net income annually to charities. LIFE INSURANCE Life insurance policies can be used to make sizable gifts to benefit your favorite charities. By making the SDCF the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, the policy will be kept out of your estate for tax purposes and you can receive a current charitable deduction for your gift.

JOIN TODAY If you have made provisions in your estate plan to make a gift through the SDCF or would like to discuss the benefits of making a planned gift, please let us know by calling 800.888.1842 or visiting SDCommunityFoundation.org/ContactUs. We would like the opportunity to recognize you today, in appreciation of your gift for tomorrow. You may also choose to join the Legacy Society as an anonymous member.
