Foundation

In 2000, the United Way of Northeastern South Dakota Board of Directors created the United Way Foundation as a separate entity to provide grant opportunities for United Way agencies outside the annual campaign. Since 2010, the Foundation has allocated over $220,000 in grant opportunities.  Requests for grant funding and reviews occur each February.
