LEADERSHIP REPORT

“I THINK, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU AND I WILL REMEMBER THIS DAY FOR A LONG TIME. WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE TODAY WILL HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT ON THE FUTURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA.” -GOVERNOR GEORGE S. MICKELSON

On November 11, 1987, Governor George S. Mickelson stood in the Capitol rotunda and shared his vision for South Dakota. He described the importance of building partnerships with businesses and individuals to provide for the long term sustainability of communities and nonprofit causes and organizations across the state. The South Dakota Community Foundation was established to strengthen South Dakota by protecting our values and providing for the future. We have never lost sight of the purpose of our organization and the importance of our work, and we are honored to share our 2016 annual report with you. As you turn each page, you’ll learn how our partnerships with both donors and nonprofits are strengthening South Dakota every day. Generous South Dakotans invested $31 million in the more than 800 funds we manage. Together, we awarded more than $13 million in grants and scholarships, and all of our funds benefited from investment returns in excess of 11.5%. Thank you for continuing to invest in the South Dakota Community Foundation to build a brighter, stronger South Dakota. Your generosity strengthens our communities, our schools and the missions of nonprofit organizations across South Dakota. We look forward to celebrating 30 years of service to South Dakota as we continue to hold fast to our promise and commitment to you and our future generations.

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 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 $259 million in total assets and manages 810 funds. The earnings from 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.

How the giving process works: 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. What you can give: You can donate a variety of assets to benefit others. We accept: Cash Gifts

Cash, Check or Credit Card

Non-Cash Gifts

Stocks and Bonds, Land, Commodities and Personal Property

Planned Gifts

Bequests, Life Insurance, Charitable Trusts and Gift Annuities

Where your donations can go: 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. Who we serve in addition to donors: Nonprofit Organizations: In 2016, nonprofits received over $1 million from the SDCF through the South Dakota Fund and the Community Innovation grant programs. In addition, nearly $13 million was distributed to nonprofits through the funds the SDCF manages for donors. The SDCF also offers agency endowment funds and Nonprofit Savings Accounts to help nonprofits create long-term funding sources. Communities: The SDCF has a fund type specifically for communities called Community Savings Accounts (CSA). A CSA will help support basic needs and enhance the quality of life within a community through grant awards to local organizations for years to come. Today, there are 76 CSAs across the state. Advisors: We partner with professional advisors to help clients accomplish their charitable goals through estate planning. Investing in South Dakota’s Future

Craig Matthesen with his niece, Kristin Fianacca, and sister, Virginia Matthesen Hagemeier.

Craig Matthesen was the definition of a small town businessman. He prided himself on providing local service to the Huron community for decades as the owner of Freeze Frame Video, an independent video rental store. Craig passed away unexpectedly at the age of 65 in March 2016. Today, his friend, financial advisor and president of the Huron Community Foundation Steve Gohn looks out the same storefront window that Matthesen did each day. With a partner, Gohn purchased the building on Dakota Avenue from his friend to house his own local business, Avail Wealth Management. “It’s bittersweet to be in the building. I miss my friend,” said Gohn. “Although he had a gruff, sarcastic personality, he had a big heart, and a desire to make an impact on his community.” Matthesen poured himself into starting and making his business a success. His commitment to his business left little time for

“Craig grew up in a wonderful, loving home and learned his frugality and entrepreneurship from his dad,” said Matthesen’s brother, Larry Matthesen. “He learned the value of investing at an early age and followed it throughout his life.” With the help of Gohn, Matthesen planned to make an impact after his lifetime. Matthesen remembered that when growing up in Chadron, Nebraska, an individual left money to the community after passing away. With the gift, the town built a new baseball field for the entire community to enjoy. The concept of

Matthesen’s estate gift, which is currently valued at approximately $1.5 million, will increase the Huron Community Foundation’s assets to $2.75 million. The funds will be invested, and the earnings will be available each year for grant distributions to nonprofit organizations by the Huron Community Foundation’s local board of directors. “Craig was a good businessman, and over time, he realized the Huron Community Foundation was a good steward of the funds entrusted to it,” said Gohn. “It was important to him that we are very careful to make sure grant funds are used to touch as many people as possible in Huron. And we do exactly that.”

“Craig gave to three things he cherished: baseball, the Huron community, and South Dakota.” - Larry Matthesen

that selfless act stuck with Matthesen throughout his lifetime, and he decided to carry it on with an estate gift to the Huron Community Foundation to benefit the Huron community, Chadron State College and the baseball program in Chadron. “Craig gave to three things he cherished: baseball, the Huron community, and South Dakota,” said Larry Matthesen. “He felt the South Dakota Community Foundation was best to use the money.”

In the years ahead, your community will face unforeseen challenges and changing needs just like Huron. If, like Craig Matthesen, you want to help your community thrive in the generations to come, call the South Dakota Community Foundation at 800.888.1842 to learn how we can help you accomplish your charitable goals.

2016 Lake Area Technical Institute Scholars and Industry NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT

Build Dakota

Scholarship Program B u i l d i n g S o u t h D a k o ta ’ s T e c h n i c a l W o r k f o r c e

In December 2014, Dana Dykhouse, Chief Executive Officer of First PREMIER Bank saw a growing need in the state’s technical workforce and approached T. Denny Sanford with an idea to provide full-ride scholarships at South Dakota’s technical institutes. The scholarships would encourage more students to consider these high-need trades and bring a refreshed awareness to what technical institutes have to offer. Mr. Sanford decided to generously commit $25 million to the project. Dykhouse and Sanford then proposed the idea to South Dakota Governor Dennis

Daugaard, a strong supporter of South Dakota’s technical schools and career and technical education. Both Mr. Sanford and the Govenor agreed to partner with the SDCF to administer the dollars. The Govenor committed $25 million from the South Dakota Future Fund. The Build Dakota Scholarship fund is held in an endowment with the South Dakota Community Foundation to offer scholarships after Sanford’s money has been disbursed. Sanford’s investment will pay for approximately 300 full-ride scholarships for the first five years of the program. The endowment will then be used to fund additional

scholarships going forward. In return for the full-ride scholarship, recipients agree to work in South Dakota, in the field paid for by Build Dakota, for three years following graduation. Build Dakota approved programs are in the fields of agriculture, automotive, building trades/construction, energy, engineering, healthcare, IT/CIS, precision manufacturing and welding. “This partnership between Mr. Sanford and Gov. Daugaard is not only a monetary one,” said Deni Amundson, Program Manager for the Build Dakota Scholarship Fund. “Build Dakota has also partnered

with the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation and Governor’s Office of Economic Development and is managed by the South Dakota Department of Education. Build Dakota’s partnership with these state entities has provided a catalyst for education and economic development to come together in one program.”

Most of the Build Dakota cohort that started in 2015-2016 will be graduating in May 2017. Since 2015, more than $8.4 million has been committed to 593 Build Dakota scholars. Over $4 million more will be committed for the 2017-2018 school year.

“As an employer in the Rapid City area, we understand the importance of the availability of skilled workers in all vocations, but especially with the high demand for technical skill jobs,” said Scott Barbour, President of Northwest Pipe Fittings.

Each technical institute works to partner with local businesses and industry to address local work force needs within the identified program. The business and Build Dakota share in the education costs - allowing the scholarship dollars to go even further in educating South Dakota’s workforce.

“Although we don’t benefit directly with workers eligible for any of the Build Dakota scholarships, I believe strongly in supporting Western Dakota Tech and the Build Dakota program. The indirect benefit of quality workers in the vocational areas helps their industries, which in turn strengthens our local economy as a whole. That is why we support Western Dakota Tech and the Build Dakota Scholarship program,” says Barbour.

“By establishing and cultivating this system of industry involvement and partnership with the technical institutes, the impact of Build Dakota will be felt for years to come,” said Amundson. This partnership with local industry also allows students to begin networking with potential employers early in their education through interview events at the technical institutes. Once they have been matched with a partner, either by the business or school, some businesses offer opportunities for part-time work and mentorship while the scholar is completing his or her education. The scholar may also be offered employment upon graduation.

Build Dakota also works with economic development professionals across the state to present a “Build Dakota Roadshow”. Build Dakota travels with representatives from the technical institutes and meets with potential students,

school staff, parents and local businesses. This provides the opportunity to not only hear more about Build Dakota and the technical institute partner programs, but makes the connection to get these potential students in the room together with potential employers. This assists local youth in discovering all of the opportunities available to them in their own back yards. “These full-ride scholarships continue to change people’s lives while helping to address a critical need in our state,” said Dykhouse. “Not only will these individuals who complete their technical school education serve a vital role in our communities, they will become tomorrow's entrepreneurs and successful business owners that will enhance the quality of life in South Dakota.” To learn more about the Build Dakota Scholarship Fund, please visit https://www. builddakotascholarships.com.

“These full-ride scholarships continue to change people’s lives while helping to address a critical need in our state.” - Dana Dykhouse

298 individuals received scholarships for the 2015-2016 school year and 295 for the 2016-2017 school year. 56 students have completed their programs to date.

BRINGING SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS TO COMMUNITIES 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 2016, the SDCF awarded $419,000 in Community Innovation Grants to 43 nonprofit and charitable organizations to carry out inclusive, collaborative and sustainable solutions. The SDCF received 135 applications with requests totaling more than $1.2 million.

“Blessinger and Jorgenson are on to something truly amazing here. Developing these devices and employing the practices described in this grant will be a way to improve people’s lives in real and everyday ways”, says Dr. Benjamin Jones, Dean, College of Arts & Sciences, Dakota State University. “I am surprised no one else has thought of this before, but not at all surprised that these two remarkable people are getting it done.”

A $10,000 check from the Community Innovation Grant program is awarded to DSU representatives. Pictured are (left to right) Dr. Ben Jones, Academic Dean for College of Arts & Sciences; Andrew Jorgenson, student; Dr. Justin Blessinger, Professor for College of Arts & Sciences, Stephanie Judson, President of the SDCF and Dr. Jose’Marie Griffiths, President of DSU GRANT RECIPIENT SPOTLIGHT

THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY…..

Dr. Justin Blessinger, Professor for College of Arts & Sciences, Dakota State University (DSU) approached a building on campus with a friend who was blind. Neither of them were familiar with this particular building and were unsure where their meeting was being held. Dr. Blessinger consulted the “sliding letter” board (similar to a marquee) for names and office numbers of employees. The sign was not accessible as there was no Braille. He began to wonder if there was a better way to address the nontechnical, very human problem of locating relevant and critical information about our immediate surroundings.

Grants | Grant Recipient Spotlight

“Everyone of a certain age remembers when the ADA pointed out our responsibility and privilege to make public facilities physically accessible. It was not always easy. But once we accomplished that, we began to reap the incredible benefits of welcoming our fellow Americans with disabilities more fully into our workplaces, our schools, and our stores”, says Justin Blessinger, Professor for College of Arts & Sciences, DSU. “We had new colleagues, new students, new customers and new friends. And the great news is that we can do more, and this time it will cost a fraction of a fraction of the resources used to transform our buildings.”

A BEACON OF HOPE….

Developers Dr. Justin Blessinger and Andrew Jorgenson, student assistant and coder, faced several challenges when attempting to implement the GoTo application. Users need to know when they might benefit from proximate information. They need to be able to “feel” that information is near, or to be alerted through any means they prefer. After weighing several options, it became apparent that a tiny Bluetooth device commonly called a “beacon” would serve the purpose. Initially developed for iPhone, the idea was quickly replicated on Android devices thanks to Google’s efforts to create an

unrestricted protocol that would work for any mobile device. Project developers needed to make sure that the beacons could “talk” to a phone. Andrew was enthusiastic about the project and worked tirelessly on innovative code solutions and attention to security details. PROJECT HAS IMPLICATIONS FOR EVERYONE….

Once a solution was identified, it became evident that everyone could benefit from this application. As soon as a sighted person walks past a marquee, your chance to gather information about your surroundings has passed. Can’t find the restroom? Check your phone and the GoTo app. What if there is an emergency and you need a First Aid kit, a defibrillator, a fire extinguisher or an emergency exit? Check your phone and the GoTo app. The app picked up these signals as soon as you entered the building

equipped with beacons. “This technology provides access within buildings and I see that as a game changer”, says Dr. Marje Kaiser, Superintendent, SD School for the Blind and Visually Impaired/SD School for the Deaf. “Imagine a mall in which each store can identify itself auditorily. Imagine an office building that shares the location of each office. Imagine a conference with vendors able to connect with passers-by.”

ACCESSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE…..

The GoTo app is affordable and will probably be free. Developers estimate that they can install beacons throughout a multistory building for a few hundred dollars. While first developed for the handicapped, it has become apparent that anyone could use the information available through the GoTo application. Developers hope that this solution can be integrated in all publicly funded buildings.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT….

In 2016, the SDCF selected DSU in Madison to receive a $10,000 Community Innovation Grant to design and implement an app to improve accessibility for persons with disabilities. The ultimate goal for this grant, would be its adoption at both the state and national level to improve accessibility for critical information. “We commend Dakota State University staff and students for identifying a need and formulating an innovative solution, “says Ginger Niemann, program officer at the South Dakota Community Foundation. “This project shows promise for replication and application far beyond what was first proposed.”

DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA? One of the South Dakota Community Foundation’s goals is to help communities that have identified a need reach a solution that is effective, equitable and sustainable.

Nonprofit Savings Account Grants SUPPORT FOR NONPROFITS NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE The SDCF is committed to strengthening nonprofits in our state. We recognize the value of committed staff and volunteers and understand the importance of consistent funding to support their work. We look forward to partnering with interested nonprofits and their supporters to build endowment funds that will support their mission now and in the years to come. Nonprofits apply to the program, and if awarded, the organization receives a $20,000 challenge grant from the SDCF after successfully fundraising $80,000 in endowed funds from donors. The total of $100,000 is added to a designated fund at the SDCF and provides perpetual funding to further each organization’s mission. One of the benefits of this program is that it removes administrative burdens from nonprofits. The SDCF handles all donor contribution receipts, commingles contributions for investment purposes and completes all necessary tax filings and audits.

foundation Grants Foundation Grants are awarded at the recommendation of donors who have established funds at the South Dakota Community Foundation. These grants include distributions from each of the fund types that SDCF administers, including agency endowment, community savings accounts, designated, donor advised, field of interest and scholarship. In 2016, $12,903,000 was distributed to nonprofit organizations through 1,597 foundation grants.

HOVEN AREA

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION H a r v e s t i n g H ov e n ’ s P o t e n t i a l f o r t h e F u t u r e The Hoven Area Community Foundation was established in 2010 to provide financial support to charitable and nonprofit causes in the Hoven area as recommended by the local Board of Directors. The board began by accepting a challenge from the South Dakota Community Foundation to raise $100,000. In return, Hoven would receive a $25,000 matching grant. The community started with family memorials and individual donations. After these donations were collected, the Plains Commerce Bank contributed $72,000 towards the cause to reach the goal of $100,000. The Hoven Area Community Foundation received the $25,000 challenge grant from the South Dakota Community Foundation in January of 2013. Since 2014, the Hoven Area Community Foundation has disbursed $15,000 in grants for improvements to local organizations and quality of life projects including the Hoven Service Club, the Hoven swimming pool, Senior Center, FFA teaching materials and more. 41

In addition to providing grant dollars back to the community, the Hoven Area Community Foundation seeks to be a catalyst for community prosperity. “The local service club was looking for a way to stimulate the community,” said Vern Rausch, President of the Hoven Community Foundation. “Hoven was not a large enough community to make a large enough foundation to earn the benefits that a larger one like the South Dakota Community Foundation can.” A recent project was launched to benefit the Hoven community called “Harvesting Hoven’s Potential for the Future”. In 2015, the Hoven Service Club received a $10,000 grant from the South Dakota Community Foundation to team up with Dakota Resources and Grow South Dakota to help Hoven grow. The Hoven Area Community Foundation also provided a $2,300 grant toward the initiative in June 2016. The initiative group thought it would be useful to ask citizens what immediate

Stephanie Judson, President of the South Dakota Community Foundation, presented the Hoven Community Foundation with a $10,000 Community Innovation Grant and highlighted the crucial part Hoven’s students played in distributing the needs assessment survey to the community.

Vern Rausch, member of the Hoven Area Community Foundation, is a coordinator for the Harvesting Hoven’s Potential for the Future initiative. Rausch has provided dedicated leadership and vision for the project.

The initiative group hosted a gathering to discuss the results of the needs assessment survey and identified the five priorities for Hoven’s initiative moving forward.

needs there are in the area. The group utilized students to distribute the online survey to their parents. “After World War II, the government was looking to rebuild American agriculture through the 4-H program and they started to educate parents through the youth,” said Rausch. “So we thought the best way to reach the parents with this survey was through the students. They were a crucial part of getting this online survey to the community.”

accommodate an after school program through available grants. In the business sector, the committee was working to enhance marketing strategies to raise awareness for local services. New potential daycare providers were approached to establish a transition plan. The housing committee worked with the Hoven FFA to complete a citywide clean up and were working to create more short-term rental options.

230 community members responded to the survey and results were published in October 2015. Survey information was presented at the first community gathering and five priorities were identified through conversation among residents. Committees were created to discuss healthcare, housing, youth, business and daycare. “The community felt strongly that these were our top five priorities so we set to work,” said Rausch.

“The dedicated community residents on the core and initiative teams are willing to make change happen around these initiatives for Hoven with guidance and support from the community coach,” said Paula Jensen, Vice President of Advancement for Dakota Resources.

Committee meetings were held throughout the beginning of 2016. By May, each committee had formed a plan and some had taken action. The youth committee’s focus was to organize summer workshops through the 4-H program and

In 2016, the Hoven Area Community Foundation applied for a Community Innovation Grant of $10,000 from the South Dakota Community Foundation for the community initiative and was awarded the grant in 2017. These funds will be used to provide Hoven volunteers benefits throughout the next 12 months from the Empower! Dakota program including community coaching visits, team training,

online learning with other community peers from across the state, an annual community celebration and other training and community engagement opportunities. Jensen said, “I see Hoven’s success as being directly related to them taking the time to 1) be inclusive, 2) learn around their issues, 3) discover the wise action to step into, and 4) persevere throughout this ongoing community empowerment process.” When asked what has led to their success thus far, Rausch replied, “If enough community members want something to happen, it will. Key factors for success were local people stepping up to take leadership positions.” “I am hoping this gives Hoven the boost to keep moving forward and looking toward a brighter future for our younger generation,” said Sara Johnson, Communicator with the Harvesting Hoven’s Potential for the Future initiative.

The SDCF has partnered with 76 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. With SDCF’s careful investment, a community’s CSA will continue to grow and support annual awards and grants in perpetuity ensuring the town continues to thrive for years to come. CSAs are under the control of a local board of directors. The board directs fundraising efforts and distribution of available funds. Through local guidance, the money raised in your community, stays in your community.

STRENGTHENING INVESTMENTS The ebbs and flows of the market require diligent analysis and constant oversight. The SDCF’s Investment Committee meets regularly to ensure investments are being managed prudently for long-term results.
