Staff Pay-It-Forward for 50th Anniversary

Thursday, February 04, 2016


We’re celebrating a half century of serving South Dakota. To mark our 50th anniversary, each staff member and NESDCAP Board member has been given $50 to donate to a community organization. Throughout the year there will be fifty recipients throughout the GROW SD service area, the first of which was Sisseton Community Transit, a non-profit public transportation service in Sisseton, SD. “We value our staff and the passion they have for the communities we serve. This Pay-It-Forward event is a small token of our appreciation toward all of the local organizations that make communities better places to live and work,” said GROW South Dakota CEO Marcia Erickson.

A Half-Century of Serving South Dakotans

In 1978, NESDCAP created the Northeast South Dakota Economic Corporation (NESDEC) as a revolving loan fund to focus on small business lending and job creation in 22 counties. In 2007, Grow South Dakota, was formed to provide housing, community and economic development statewide. Through services to individuals, technical assistance to community and economic development agencies, and loans to small businesses and homebuyers, GROW South Dakota has had broad and lasting impact.
