A Trusted Steward
The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation understands we must serve the needs of our region today while remaining financially sustainable to address the needs of tomorrow.
In our last fiscal year (2018-2019), the Foundation distributed $18 million in grants and support. We also received $40 million in new contributions, bringing our assets to more than $179 million. And as a public charity, the Foundation adheres to the highest standards and meets the Council on Foundation's National Standards.
We are the thoughtful stewards of your philanthropic dollars. Our 25-year compounded annualized return as of 6.30.19 is 7.7%. Our diversified portfolio includes domestic and international equities and fixed income securities.
The Community Foundation's long-term investment pool is managed by a volunteer committee, comprised of three board members and three independent financial advisors. The committee meets monthly to analyze market conditions and make timely, tactical adjustments to the portfolio.
