Morning Fill Up returns on September 21 at 7am at The Garage in Rapid City with a conversation with Stephanie Judson, president of South Dakota Community Foundation.
In a conversation with Matt Ehlman, Stephanie will discuss the role of philanthropy in the state and her work with the generous people of South Dakota, and reflect on the growth of SDCF and her decision to spend her career in the third sector.
South Dakota Community Foundation has been connecting generous people and community nonprofits throughout the state of South Dakota for 30 years. SDCF was established as part of late Governor George Mickelson’s vision for our state’s second century. Nearly every community across South Dakota has been impacted by the work of SDCF.
Stephanie has been with SDCF for 20 years and has served as its president for nearly five years. SDCF’s initial $10 million dollar endowment has grown to nearly $300 million. Over $100 million dollars in grants and scholarships have been awarded by SDCF to nonprofits and individuals doing important work in our state.
Morning Fill Up is sponsored by The Numad Group and The Bush Foundation. Morning Fill Up is a series of public gatherings intended to inspire and engage members of The Garage, as well as residents around western South Dakota, to put their creative energies into action for the betterment of the entire community.
