What services does the Siouxland Community Foundation provide?
The Siouxland Community Foundation is a trusted organization that connects people who care with causes that matter by providing a means to receive gifts and distribute grants in response to community needs.

What is a fun or surprising fact about your business?
The Siouxland Community Foundation (SCF) awarded $1.880 million in grants from over 200 funds in 2017. The Community Foundation's total assets under administration grew to over $26 million in 2017.
