Parkston Area Foundation (PAF)
Grants to South Dakota organizations for projects and programs that address a wide variety of charitable, economic, and social needs in the greater Parkston area.

All proposals should involve a tangible and measurable means of evaluation.
Projects that involve significant and continuous community volunteer support will be favorably considered.

No guarantee of continued funding will be communicated until subsequent grant applications are reviewed. However, once initiated under foundation funding, projects with a good track record will be considered favorably in subsequent grant decisions. No more than three years of sequential grant funding shall be awarded to any one grantee for the same purpose.
Organizations serving the greater Parkston area are eligible.
Applications from persons and/or agencies offering services exclusively to one gender, age group, or race will be closely scrutinized for discriminatory practices. Funding will be based on the needs of the individuals being served.

Grant Review: Grant applications will be considered once each year. The application deadline is March 31, 2018. Those applications that do not fit the mission of the Foundation, or clearly do not qualify will be eliminated.
Challenge Grants: The PAF encourages matching funds from all grant applicants. When the board perceives the need for more local involvement and support of a given project, it may issue challenge grants in any proportion. Funding may be contingent upon acquisition of the required matching money. There may be times when the PAF perceives a need in the community currently not being met. The board then may issue a challenge grant to the community or request a proposal to address that particular need.
