SD Community Foundation Awards Grant To Multi-Cultural Center

The South Dakota Community Foundation has awarded a $8,710 South Dakota Fund grant to the Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls.

The grant will be used to organize and facilitate meetings between law enforcement and different ethnic communities in the Sioux Falls area. It will also provide legal training for interpreters and contractual services for interpreting with the Sioux Falls Police Department.

“With the current climate in the United States, this funding will help us build bridges and trust between the different ethnic communities and law enforcement,” says Christy Nicolaisen, executive director for Multi-Cultural Center of Sioux Falls. “We are very grateful for the funding to provide highly trained interpreters at these meetings.”

Since 1987, the South Dakota Community Foundation has helped people reach their philanthropic goals and strengthened communities across the state. The SDCF administers approximately $250 million in total assets for over 760 funds.

In 2016, the SDCF has distributed more than $10 million in grants. For more information about the the South Dakota Community Foundation, click here.
