Connecting People who Care to Causes that Matter   Black Hills Knowledge Network   Dakota Legacy


Create your Dakota Legacy at
Black Hills Area Community Foundation

Do you love the Black Hills?

We do and we connect people who care to causes that matter throughout this beautiful area we call home.

We invite you to join us in investing in people and solutions that positively impact the Black Hills area by creating your own Dakota Legacy.

A Dakota Legacy gift can be made today, but it will impact tomorrow. It is an unrestricted gift that will be used to make grants that respond to the needs of our community. Your gift will touch the lives of children, senior citizens, families, veterans, educators, outdoor enthusiasts, art lovers, the hungry, the homeless, caregivers, business leaders and others who live, work and make their home here.

Dakota Legacy is an effort by the four community foundations in South Dakota to build awareness of the value of giving back to your community – the place where you live, work, raise your children, volunteer and enjoy life. We want to help every South Dakotan be a philanthropist.
