South Dakota's statewide Day of Giving will be held Tuesday, Dec. 1. The date coincides with the globally recognized Giving Tuesday, which brings attention to the work, impact and need of nonprofit organizations.
South Dakota Day of Giving
December 1, 2020
Encourages people across the state to give generously to local nonprofit organizations.
South Dakota Day of Giving seeks to generate excitement and grow philanthropy in South Dakota. Nonprofits across the state are uniting to encourage generosity and raise as much money as possible on a single day. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to demonstrate support for their favorite local nonprofit agencies both through donations and by raising awareness on Dec. 1.
Donors make donations directly to the local nonprofit. Every donation received, no matter the amount, increases that organization's chances to win additional funds from a prize pool. South Dakota Gives organized the prize pool and is also providing resources and training to support nonprofits who participate in Day of Giving. The event is fully funded by The Bush Foundation, South Dakota Community Foundation and several generous donors and partners.
Research has shown that nonprofits that participate in a Giving Day bring new donors to an organization, and that existing donors are more likely to increase their gift. More information about South Dakota Day of Giving can be found at southdakotagives.org
