CRYP Endowment Fund

CRYP has partnered with the South Dakota Community Foundation to maximize our charitable endowment efforts. SDCF, since 1987, has helped people reach their philanthropic goals and strengthen communities by making their charitable donations do more. Every day, SDCF works to simplify the process and grow charitable donations through careful investment — so your donations to the CRYP Endowment Fund can go further and do more good.

SDCF is at the center of philanthropic growth in South Dakota. It provides essential services to both donors and public charities, like CRYP. It also plays a key role in uniting local philanthropists with our mission. SDCF is our philanthropic partner—not just through its endowment expertise, but also through grants and its charitable giving expertise.

The distribution rate of the funds managed by SDCF is 4.5% of the average fair market value of the total endowment (average to be computed based on 16 quarter trailing average or actual quarters during first four years of the fund’s existence.) This distributable/spendable amount is available to CRYP each year, to be used for our most urgent needs and opportunities.
