Welcome to Black Hills Area Community Foundation

Connecting People Who Care to Causes that Matter.

The BHACF provides philanthropic leadership to build community endowments to invest in people and solutions that positively impact the Black Hills area.

We Are HOPE in the Black Hills

HOPE is defined as ‘a feeling of expectation and desire.’ The Black Hills Area Community Foundation was launched in 2006 and as we move into 2016, we are filled with HOPE and expectations as we grow and enter a new chapter of our history. We have a new Executive Director, Liz Hamburg, a dynamic Board that includes new members as well as recommitted past Board members. As you read the cover story of our donors Rob and Debbie Mudge, the story of our new endowment partner, the HOPE Center, and the excitement and expectations of Black Hills by Choice giving circles, we HOPE that you will share our excitement as we work to expand our presence and impact throughout the region.
