Foundation / Corporation
Huron Community Foundation (HCF)
Grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 and grants starting at $10,000 to South Dakota nonprofit organizations for programs that enhance the quality of life for residents of Huron. The programs being proposed must address a community need and be able to demonstrate measurable, tangible results.
Large Projects or Multi-Year Awards
Grant awards that exceed $10,000, multi-year awards, or a combination thereof, are reserved exclusively for projects the Foundation determines will have a significant community-wide impact. Multi-year grant awards will be reviewed each year to determine that project progress meets the expectations of the Foundation and that it remains eligible for continued funding. Periodic project updates may be required by the Foundation.
Applications requesting start-up money must provide evidence detailing a need for the project, community support for the concept, and a probability for ongoing success.
The Foundation supports ongoing well-established projects, as well as funding projects designed to address community needs using new and innovative approaches.
Capital improvement projects for new or remodeled facilities are eligible for funding. In addition to having a community-wide impact, favorable applications will have funding from multiple sources, rather than relying solely on Huron Community Foundation funds. Capital improvement grants will not be distributed until all project funds are secured.
When the Foundation perceives the need for more local involvement and community ownership of a project, it may issue a challenge grant. In these instances, Foundation funding will be contingent upon successful acquisition of the challenge grant funds by the applicant organization.
Applications will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
- Community benefit of the project
- Number of people impacted
- Matching funds for project
- Cost per person impacted by the project
- Likelihood of continued success in subsequent years
- Community support/volunteer participation
