South Dakota is Growing for Good Wide open spaces. Hard-working people. Vibrant communities. This is where we live. This is where we grow.
Established in 1987, the South Dakota Community Foundation helps people reach their philanthropic goals and strengthens communities by working together. Charitable donations invested with us grow today, so they can continue doing good tomorrow. Donors receive the maximum tax benefit and investments grow tax free, so charitable gifts make the largest possible impact.
Our mission is to promote philanthropy, receive and administer charitable gifts, and carefully invest in a wide range of programs supporting the people of South Dakota.

Leadership Report The South Dakota Community Foundation has been growing since 1987. Each year, growth is our goal. We aim to grow the funds we manage and the opportunities we provide, so communities and organizations can flourish. We know growth is important to you, too. You have many opportunities to give, and we appreciate that you have partnered with us to invest your charitable dollars and help our state grow. We all share a desire to create a better future for those who call South Dakota home. As we reflect on what we accomplished together in 2014, this annual report will remind us of what South Dakotans are so excellent at doing – Growing for Good. Over lifetimes, people across our state are planting seeds of good, growing them and standing back to watch a harvest of positive change in their communities. The South Dakota Community Foundation helps South Dakotans achieve their philanthropic goals. We gather funds and grow money through careful investment, which yields a harvest of charitable gifts, year after year. As your partner, we want to share how our growth is impacting South Dakota. Here are a few 2014 highlights: • The number of individual contributions received was 11% higher, but the total dollars donated more than doubled over the previous year, totaling nearly $37 million! • Your generosity allowed us to award more than 1,400 grants totaling nearly $7.9 million to worthy recipients across South Dakota. • 52 new funds were created. • In its first year of existence, the Community Innovation Grant partnership with the Bush Foundation distributed $225,000 to 24 nonprofits. This year’s annual report theme also helps us announce a new program aimed at meeting the needs of our donors who are landowners. For the last 27 years, we have accepted gifts in many forms, including gifts of land and real estate. However, until now, our policies dictated that we sell any property gifted to the South Dakota Community Foundation. Now, through our new “Growing for Good” land management program, a donor can make a gift of land and allow the South Dakota Community Foundation to manage it. Then, for generations to come, charitable entities and causes the donor selects will benefit from the proceeds. South Dakotans have an opportunity to protect what they hold sacred, forever. Land can stay in production, stay on the tax rolls and continue to benefit the causes donors care about most. Growing for Good — It is what you do. It is what we do. And we look forward to working with you in 2015 to keep South Dakota thriving.
Jim Hart Board Chairman
Stephanie Judson President
Our History The South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) began as a public, nonprofit corporation on November 11, 1987; 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 the 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 holds more than $227 million in total assets and manages over 700 endowed funds. 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.
Growing for Good Land Management Program Allowing Real Estate to Benefit Nonprofits
Many South Dakotans have spent their entire lives growing crops to feed the world. They’ve put down deep roots in South Dakota’s soil. Now, with the help of the South Dakota Community Foundation, landowners can keep growing for good during their lifetimes and beyond by gifting land.
How it works for landowners: 1. Evaluate Tax Implications.
3. Produce in Perpetuity.
The land of many South Dakotans has a very low cost basis and selling it often generates significant capital gains tax. Gifting a portion of land to charitable interests through the SDCF allows you, as a landowner, to reduce or effectively eliminate capital gains and estate tax.
You’ve focused on yielding a harvest your entire life. By gifting land through the SDCF, that production, and your legacy, doesn’t end. Your land will continue to provide for others as proceeds from the sale of your land or annual net income benefits the charitable interests you and your family care about, forever.
2. Consider Gifting Options. The SDCF listens to your desires as a landowner before presenting philanthropic options that best meet your needs. Each donor’s situation is different, but several land gifting options exist, including: • Making an immediate or deferred gift of land. • Allowing the SDCF to sell your gift of land. The sale proceeds are added to your endowed fund and a percentage is distributed to charities annually. • Choosing the SDCF to hold and manage your gift of land. A portion of the land’s net income will be distributed to the nonprofits you recommend each year. • Retaining a life estate in land by gifting a piece of property but continuing to receive a stream of income off that property throughout your life.
PROGRAM BENEFITS • Tax deductions are maximized. • Capital gains tax is reduced or eliminated. • Local communities benefit through continued tax revenue and farm operations. • Charities of your choice receive perpetual support.

Planting the Seeds of South Dakota’s Future Gifts that Keep Giving
Many South Dakotans want to give back to the communities that have helped them grow. The aim of the South Dakota Community Foundation is to provide trustworthy guidance to help you make a lasting impact in our state. We start by offering a variety of fund types, and we look forward to helping you find a fund type that will meet your charitable goals as an individual, family, community or nonprofit organization. When you establish a fund at the SDCF, the principal of your donation is invested. Each year, a percentage of your fund’s value is made available for distribution to charitable causes. As a result, your fund’s value grows and continues to impact South Dakotans for generations to come.
STEP 1: Select Your Seed. Determine a Gift Category. You can start a fund at the SDCF with a variety of assets.
STEP 2: Sow the Seed. Choose a Fund Type.
STEP 3: Watch Good Grow. Start Your Fund.
Different fund types allow you to control how your dollars are distributed and what charitable causes will benefit. We offer seven fund types to customize your charitable gift.
Once you’ve decided on a fund type, we will prepare a fund agreement. After receiving the signed agreement, along with your generous contribution, we will establish your fund.
The SDCF would be happy to help you decide what fund type best meets your charitable goals. Call the SDCF at 800.888.1842 to set up a meeting.
Every year, the SDCF will allocate a portion of your total fund value for distribution and notify you of the amount available to support charitable causes. Our current distribution rate is 4.5% of the fund’s average fair market value.
You can view the full list of existing funds on pages 9–14 and online at SDCommunityFoundation.org/Funds.

AGENCY ENDOWMENT SPOTLIGHT
Helping Nonprofits Help Others Agency Endowment Funds
The South Dakota Community Foundation supports nonprofits across the state through agency endowment funds. Only nonprofits can establish these funds, which allow organizations to focus on serving others instead of administrative tasks and investment monitoring. One such organization is the South Dakota Education Access Foundation (SDEAF). The SDEAF was created to receive a $33 million donation from Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation in 2009. The board of directors wanted as much money as possible to support the organization’s mission and as few dollars as possible used for administrative expenses. That’s when they decided to partner with the SDCF. “We had a pool of money that we needed to administer using an all volunteer board. We didn’t have the time or expertise to do it ourselves,” says Cindi Walsh, chair of the SDEAF Board of Directors. “The South Dakota Community Foundation had an excellent reputation and an excellent track record of success and gave us the perfect venue to manage our foundation.”
Facts at a Glance
By setting up an agency endowment fund, the SDEAF volunteer board now has more time and resources to concentrate on grantmaking. In 2014, the organization distributed approximately $1.75 million to more than 2,500 students at 29 South Dakota postsecondary institutions. The organization’s main objective is to empower colleges and universities with funding to provide financial assistance to students in order to improve the rates of entry and success in education beyond high school.
SDEAF invested $33.3 million with the SDCF in February 2009. Total grants and other disbursements have exceeded $13.3 million since the fund began.
Agency Endowments Provide for the Future As a nonprofit leader or board member, an agency endowment fund with the SDCF helps you worry less about your long-term funding. Your agency endowment fund will be pooled with all of SDCF’s assets to maximize investment earnings. Then, a portion of your fund will be available each year to provide long-term, consistent funding to your organization. The SDCF has walked dozens of organizations through the agency endowment setup process and would be happy to discuss the option with your organization. For more information about Agency Endowment Funds, contact our office or go online to SDCommunityFoundation.org/NonprofitServices.
The SDEAF’s current fund balance is over $46 million. Investment gains total over $26 million since the SDEAF first partnered with the SDCF. Approximately $1.75 million per year is distributed to support higher education in South Dakota.

Cultivating a Legacy in Rapid City: Jack and Ruth Cannon
Professional Advisors: Catalysts for Legacy Planning was so well versed in so many aspects of life. He could sit down and visit with you about any sporting event then turn to the next guy and talk farming and ranching,” said the Cannon’s close friend, Maggie Marshall. “Together they made a model couple, and it was rare to see one without the other. They gave so much of their talents and time to the area. Any of us fortunate enough to call them ‘friends’ are better people for having known them.” Jack Cannon’s ease in front of audiences and good sense of humor made him a natural choice as a master of ceremonies at many community and statewide events, including the Miss South Dakota Pageant. Jack also spent countless hours preparing the lights for Storybook Island’s annual Christmas light display. Ruth reported hardly seeing him from Labor Day to Thanksgiving as he replaced burnt out and missing bulbs from countless strings of lights. The Cannons felt volunteering time, talent and sometimes treasure is part of the rent we pay for the space we occupy on earth. That philosophy was the foundation for the Cannon’s desire to give back beyond their lifetimes. Jack passed away in January of 2010 and Ruth in January of 2014, but their legacy continues. Starting in 2016, more than $90,000 will be available annually from a designated fund to support the charities dear to them.
A Legacy of Service and Support The Cannons sowed seeds of service throughout their lives. And with the establishment of a designated fund managed by the SDCF, their charitable contributions will yield support for the following organizations in perpetuity: • • • • • • •
Western South Dakota Catholic Foundation Children’s Home Society Storybook Island Black Hills Workshop Foundation Black Hills Playhouse Foundation Behavior Management Systems Endowment LaSalle Academy (Providence, RI)
Any South Dakotan can use a designated fund to provide for the organizations they care most about in perpetuity. Your forethought today ensures nonprofits can endure tomorrow.
By working with their attorney during the estate planning process, Jack and Ruth Cannon established a fund that would benefit organizations and causes they supported their entire lives. Learn how their attorney, Pat Goetzinger, Partner at Gunderson, Palmer, Nelson, Ashmore LLP, helped them to attain their charitable goals. Q: How did the SDCF help Jack and Ruth Cannon reach their charitable goals during their estate planning process? Pat Goetzinger: The SDCF’s designated fund concept made it easy for Jack and Ruth to articulate their objectives and put in place an agreement to provide for those charitable organizations and causes important to them. The idea of structuring a gift through an endowed fund that would benefit their charitable causes in perpetuity was very appealing to them. They lit up when discussing leaving a legacy. Q: Why did the Cannons make a charitable contribution through the SDCF? PG: Jack and Ruth had a desire to give back to the community that gave so much to them. Their legacy will be an example that you don’t need to be ultra wealthy to leave a lasting legacy. The Cannon’s old-fashioned sensibilities of fulfilling their charitable duties are being carried out with current techniques that make it extremely easy and inexpensive to leave a legacy.

Community Innovation Grants
Bringing Sustainable Solutions to Communities
Today’s changing community needs and complex challenges require creative thinking and new approaches. That’s 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 over time, eventually lead to a breakthrough in addressing a community need that is more effective, equitable or sustainable than existing approaches. In 2014, the SDCF awarded $225,000 in Bush Foundation grants to 24 nonprofit or charitable organizations to address community needs with inclusive, collaborative and sustainable solutions.

GRANT RECIPIENT SPOTLIGHT
Harmony South Dakota: Shaping Lives Through Music Dan and Heidi Goeller are passionate about making meaningful music and sharing it with others. With the help of other talented teaching artists, the couple is working to transform the lives of some of Sioux Falls’ most disadvantaged youth through music. Dan and Heidi Goeller modeled Harmony South Dakota after a Venezuelan program used around the globe called El Sistema. The Goeller’s began their after-school program with 21 students in the spring semester of 2014 and now teach a group of 27 students.
Program Format Harmony South Dakota provides an encouraging, safe and structured after-school environment for children who would otherwise have limited or no adult supervision at no cost to the families. The students participate in a string orchestra, percussion ensemble and choir. They also receive private instrument lessons, musicianship instruction as well as time to complete their homework each week. Although Harmony South Dakota provides musical instruction, the program’s overall goal is more expansive. “Ultimately, our goal is not only to create talented
musicians, but also to provide children with the opportunity to learn the discipline, gain the confidence and develop the skills necessary to be successful members of our community.”
Student Selection Harmony South Dakota selects students for its program from Hawthorne Elementary School in Sioux Falls, where 87% of students receive free and reduced lunches. A majority of the students chosen for the program are non-native English speakers and many of them are from refugee families. “Perhaps the most troubling data for Hawthorne students is found in a Gallup Poll of the student body. Only 36% of students say they have ‘Hope: ideas and energy for the future’ and only 59% ‘Think well of themselves,’” says Dan Goeller, executive director of Harmony South Dakota. “Those are statistics we want to change by using music to develop self-discipline, self-confidence, concentration,

in addressing a community need that is more effective, equitable and sustainable than existing approaches,” says Ginger Niemann, program officer at the South Dakota Community Foundation. “This program addresses the needs of students who would have no supervision at home after school, but that is just the beginning. The students are learning how to play an instrument, which instills discipline and improves confidence. The SDCF is pleased to provide the funding necessary to spark growth in the lives of these students.”
Expanding Impact In the fall of 2015, Harmony South Dakota hopes to serve 35 students. The program will continue to culturally enrich families and community members by performing concerts at retirement homes, schools and other after-school programs. Harmony South Dakota will work to deepen the educational impact of the program and monitor improvements in academic performance through teacher evaluations each semester. “Our first group of students all made dramatic improvements in their ability to play their string instruments, sing and read music,” says Goeller. “Teacher evaluations after the first semester all indicated improvement in students’ self-confidence and ability to concentrate and focus. Several students who started the program with many difficulties and poor attitudes have blossomed into confident and fun-loving kids!” The SDCF strives to be a catalyst for change in communities across the state by supporting nonprofits through grants. See lists for all SDCF grants on pages 34, 36 and 39–46.
Do Good coordination, emotional awareness, patience, cooperation, imagination and cognition in students.”
Financial Support In 2014, the SDCF selected Harmony South Dakota to receive a $7,500 Community Innovation Grant to recruit collaborative partners, build the program structure and engage key stakeholders to ensure its success. The nonprofit also received a $7,000 South Dakota Fund Grant, which allowed the program to provide an orchestral instrument for each participating student.
We understand the possibilities that exist in South Dakota. Your ideas can change lives for the better in your community. A grant from the SDCF may be the support your nonprofit needs to make a breakthrough in your community. Find out how to apply for grants from the SDCF online at SDCommunityFoundation.org/Grants.

2014 Foundation Grants
Community Savings Accounts The SDCF has partnered with 70 communities across South Dakota to form Community Savings Accounts (CSA). CSAs allow South Dakotans to help their hometown continue to thrive for years to come.
What is a CSA?
CSAs awarded over
through grants to 353 NONPROFIT
A CSA provides past, current 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.
How Does a CSA Work?
Every CSA has its own local board of directors to raise funds and distribute grants to nonprofits meeting the needs of the community. The money raised in your community stays in the community.
HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT AN EXISTING CSA? • Volunteer as a board member or assist with a fundraiser. • Tell clients about a CSA as an option for charitable giving if you are a CPA, attorney or financial advisor. • Donate a variety of assets to your CSA.

Planning for a Bright Tomorrow, Today
In 1994, a local board of directors partnered with the SDCF to establish a Community Savings Account. For the past 20 years, the Miller Area Community Foundation has worked hard to raise more than $717,000 in endowed funds to ensure Miller continues to thrive for years to come. In 2014, Miller was named “Philanthropic Community of the Year” by the South Dakota Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals for its dedication to the long-term growth and sustainability of the community. “Two prerequisites for any community hoping to build a successful foundation are an invested donor base and dedicated leadership. Miller shines because they have both,” says Buddy Seiner, community development coordinator at the SDCF. “When the board of directors tells the community about why a sustainable asset is being built for the future of Miller, individuals, businesses and local organizations actively support them. It is a community-wide effort.”
Up to the Challenge Community challenge grants have been a key factor in the success of the Miller Area Community Foundation. Shortly after the Hand County State Bank’s $125,000 contribution to create the foundation, an anonymous donor challenged the community to raise $100,000 for a $50,000 match. The community met the challenge in less 49

than a day. In 1997, the community foundation embarked on another $100,000 challenge from the SDCF and Northwest Area Foundation. The community reached the goal in less than the three-year challenge period. Nearly a decade later, Miller residents worked to raise $75,000 in order to receive a $75,000 match from community member Richard Joy and another $25,000 from the SDCF. At that check presentation ceremony in 2012, a new challenge was issued to raise $100,000 to receive $100,000 from Larry Coss. The Miller Area Community Foundation has accepted that challenge and currently has over $95,000 raised toward the goal. Once this challenge is fulfilled, the Miller Area Community Foundation’s fund balance will surpass $865,000 in endowed funds. “The generosity of our community is behind the success of the Miller Area Community Foundation,” says board member Dawn Joy. “From $1 donations to $1,000 donations, our community is there to support the foundation’s efforts. We also have board members who are willing to go out in the community to raise the money needed to make this foundation the success it is today.”
Road to Success
The fundraising success has allowed the board of the Miller Area Community Foundation to award more than $334,000 in grants to more than 100 area nonprofits. In 2014, the board of directors awarded $21,800 to 13 community organizations.
Miller demonstrates that consistent promotion, good grantmaking, community support and dedicated leadership make a Community Savings Account a valuable asset to any community. This type of success, however, does not develop overnight. The Miller Area Community Foundation has grown because of the persistent dedication and vision of board members and donors alike.
The foundation has supported medical, youth and public safety organizations along with other community groups including 4-H Clubs, the Coalition on Underage Drinking, FCCLA, Hand County Angel Tree, the Miller Booster Club, the Miller Community Center and the Wheels and Meals program.
A Community Savings Account can be a powerful tool to help your community grow. Our team will visit your hometown to explain the benefits and how to get started. Call 800.888.1842 to schedule a meeting.
The Power of Challenge Grants: First Interstate Bank Impacts Black Hills Communities
In 2009, the First Interstate BancSystems Foundation issued a challenge to six Black Hills communities with Community Savings Accounts, including Belle Fourche, Custer, Lead-Deadwood, Fall River County, Sturgis and Wall. The challenge was to raise $10,000 per year for five years.

First Interstate Greater Sturgis Area Fund
First Interstate Greater Belle Fourche Fund
First Interstate Fall River Area Fund
First Interstate Greater Wall Area Fund
First Interstate Custer Area Fund
As the communities met the annual goal, the First Interstate BancSystems Foundation matched their efforts with a $10,000 gift to each CSA. All six CSAs fulfilled the challenge, and as a result, each received an additional $25,000 gift from the South Dakota Community Foundation. “The First Interstate BancSystem Foundation felt partnering with six Community Savings Accounts was the perfect way to support the Black Hills communities that our bank is now part of,” says Kelly Bruggeman, executive director of the First Interstate BancSystem Foundation. “We hoped to help invigorate and increase the CSAs and their funds, so they would have more dollars to grant towards community projects.” In total, these local CSAs have cumulatively raised $1,924,700 and distributed $1,185,233 through grants to nonprofits. During the five-year challenge period, the total amount of endowed funds for all six Black Hills communities grew by more than $988,000! The added financial support will allow these foundations and their volunteer board members to meet community needs for many years to come.
