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 100,000 school supplies 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.
