Want to build long-term success in South Dakota? Get connected with the community.

Building a solid foundation for progress in any community is critical to long-term success.

When we come together, great things happen.

Make it a point to familiarize yourself with the nonprofit groups, organizations, and local leaders making a difference in South Dakota right now. 

To start, we recommend getting to know the following organizations:

  • The Justice through Empowerment Network (JEN) helps South Dakota patients, not just with funding for their abortion, but also with costs associated with transportation, childcare, lodging, interpreters, medications, food, birth control, and the morning-after pill. 
  • Planned Parenthood South Dakota is one of the region’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. With or without insurance, you can always come to us for your health care.
  • The Transformation Project supports and empowers transgender individuals and their families while educating communities in South Dakota and the surrounding region about gender identity and expression.
  • South Dakota Voices for Justice empowers South Dakotans with accurate information to fight Islamophobia, anti-immigrant, and anti-refugee bigotry. 
  • NDN Collective is an Indigenous-led organization dedicated to building Indigenous power. Through organizing, activism, philanthropy, grantmaking, capacity-building and narrative change, we are creating sustainable solutions on Indigenous terms.
