Improving lives in our communities

The Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund was formed in 2010 with the mission of supporting charitable causes in communities across South Dakota. As the nonprofit arm of Black Hills Federal Credit Union, the Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization and recognized as a tax-exempt public charity by the IRS. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. 

Ways We Give Back

  • BHFCU's employee-led Community Action Team contributes, volunteers, and organizes fundraisers for more than 60 charitable organizations each year.
  • Through a weekly Jeans Day Program, BHFCU employees donate money to various causes supported by the Charitable Fund.
  • BHFCU's Annual School Supply Drive has been collecting, sorting, and distributing more than to local students in need since 1997.
  • With the on-going support of BHFCU's members, volunteers, and staff, as well as the generosity of community and business partners, we continue to improve lives in South Dakota.

Current Projects

Pierre Pool Donation
We're proud to be a part of a big project in Pierre! BHFCU donated $10,000 to the City of Pierre pool complex project. The new pool will benefit Pierre area residents and presents an excellent economic growth opportunity for the community. The project is expected to get underway in spring 2021.
Sioux Falls Cares
For the last three years, BHFCU has been pleased to support the efforts of Sioux Falls Cares! Our staff helped deliver food, clothing, toys, and other necessities to area families in need, along with a $500 donation. We're grateful for the opportunity to spread cheer around the holidays.
Jeans Day for the Storehouse
In December, we used $300 from our Jeans Day fundraiser to support the Storehouse in Custer. The Storehouse receives and distributes donated food and household items to those in need in Custer County.
Operation Black Hills Cabin Donation
We're proud to support Operation Black Hills Cabin with a $500 donation. The organization provides week-long getaways for combat-wounded veterans and their families as a way to promote healing. BHFCU is honored to support the work of Operation Black Hills Cabin.
Salvation Army Angel Trees
Every holiday season, our Rapid City locations look forward to fulfilling local families' needs through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. This year is no exception, as our team provided gifts for five Angel Trees!
Pierre Area Referral Services Support
We recently donated over $500 for the BackPack Program at Pierre Area Referral Service (PARS). Throughout the school year, PARS fills backpacks with easy-to-prepare weekend meals and snacks for kids in the Pierre area who may not have enough to eat at home. We are happy to support such a worthy cause.
