GROW SD Celebrates Anniversary by Giving Back and Paying Forward

Tuesday, January 03, 2017

check recipientsIn 2016, GROW South Dakota celebrated its 50th anniversary of the establishment of NESDCAP and the beginning of its mission of serving the people of South Dakota in housing, economic and community development. In recognition of that milestone, the boards of each GROW SD organization authorized the expenditure of funds to give back to the communities the organizations have supported through the Pay-It-Forward Program. Through the program, each staff member and board member received $50 to donate to a community organization. The program was supported in part through a grant from NeighborWorks America.

“We value our board members and 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 our communities better places to live and work,” said GROW South Dakota CEO Marcia Erickson.

More than 40 staff and board members donated more than $2,000 to 39 community organizations:
