How Will My Money Be Used?

Festival of Books

Your donation will help us continue to unite readers and writers with our annual South Dakota Festival of Books and Young Readers Festival. 

Unrestricted Gift

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

Endowment Funds

Your contribution to our endowments guarantees the future of our organization for the next generation. You can donate to endowment funds at Black Hills Area Community Foundation, South Dakota Community Foundation and/or Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation.

To donate to a fund, call 605-688-6113 or make your check payable to the specific community foundation and mail to:

South Dakota Humanities Council

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.
