Community Savings Accounts A Lasting Community Impact The SDCF has partnered with almost 80 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. Under this local control, the money raised in your community, stays in your community.
