3. Nonprofit Savings Account Grants Immediate and Future Support for Nonprofits 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 years to come. Organizations are selected through a competitive application process and receive a $20,000 challenge grant from the SDCF when they successfully raise $80,000. The challenge grants will create new designated funds for each of the successful applicants. An added benefit of this program is that administrative burdens are removed from nonprofits. The SDCF handles all donor contribution receipts, commingles contributions for investment purposes and completes all necessary tax filings and audits.
