South Dakota’s first-ever, state-wide Day of Giving will be held over 24 hours on Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018, according to a news release. South Dakota Gives, comprised of volunteers representing community members across the state, will support the effort by providing regional trainings and resources to increase giving by South Dakotans, for South Dakotans. The South Dakota Prize Pool will offer prize money to South Dakota-based nonprofits who register to participate in South Dakota Day of Giving. The prize money has been donated by individuals, businesses and foundations who wish to encourage giving in the state. Prize money will be awarded not only on Giving Tuesday, but in the months leading up to the November event to instigate nonprofits to amplify their voice early, and carefully plan their fundraising activities.
