Festival of Books

Help us continue to unite readers and writers with our annual South Dakota Festival of Books and Young Readers Festival. 


Young Readers 1-to-1 Match

Help us boost our Young Readers Initiative and reach more youth on South Dakota American Indian Reservations. We received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities that will match $1 for every $1 you donate from non-federal sources if we raise $100,000 from non-federal sources. 


Unrestricted Gift

You can help where SDHC needs it most. An unrestricted gift can be used towards operations expenses, programming and special initiatives. 

Legacy Pledge

Many of our donors have chosen this option to make a gift to the SDHC in their will or estate planning. Matured stocks, life insurance policies, and IRA rollovers can easily be processed by our Community Foundation partners.
