$50,000 Fundraising Goal Exceeded
We met our fundraising goal! As of April 24, we have deposited $50,150 in receipts restricted to the Young Readers 1:1 Challenge Grant, exceeding our first goal of raising $50,000 by May 1, 2017. This means NEH will match that with a $50,000 deposit to our account. Read more about our Young Readers Initiative on the SDHC blog.
Thank you to our generous donors who helped us meet our goal! Click below for the full list of donors.
We are now working to meet our second goal of raising another $50,000 in matching NEH funds by May 1, 2018. To assist with that effort, please click below.

The South Dakota Humanities Council (SDHC), founded in 1972 in response to an act of Congress, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the only cultural organization in the state whose sole mission is to deliver humanities programming to the people of South Dakota. Our vision is to "lead statewide advocacy for the humanities, working with other partners to foster literary and civic engagement." This programming vision forms the core mission:
The South Dakota Humanities Council celebrates literature, promotes civil conversation, and tells the stories that define our state.
The sole meaning in life is to serve humanity.
