New Fund Celebrates South Dakota's 125th Anniversary

Aug 13, 2014

A group of Rapid City volunteers has started a new fund to help celebrate the state’s 125th anniversary. The Frontier Fund aims to raise at least $125 thousand in South Dakota and then give that money in small grants to local community non-profit organizations.  The idea is to not only meet needs in the state, but also build community and expand the notion of philanthropy through the fundraising effort. Charles Michael Ray spoke with fund organizers Matt Ehlman, Megan Clark and Madison Zimmerman-Dusek.
