It is out of a deep sense of gratitude to God that we share the annual impact report of activities of the Catholic Community Foundation for Eastern SD through June 30, 2020. In spite of the challenges brought on by Covid-19, donors continue to support the many charities that they care most about – and to reach out to those particularly challenged by the pandemic. On behalf of the board members and staff of the Catholic Community Foundation (CCFESD), we would like to thank the many donors, volunteers, and beneficiaries that carry out the work of the Church in eastern South Dakota and beyond. It is a privilege for us to listen to what donors’ value most in life, about what they are grateful for, and the legacy of faith that they desire to live and to leave.
