Fifteen Sioux Falls and South Dakota nonprofits have been approved to take this next step in a national competition for grant money, and they need our help to get them to the next stage.

Through “A Community Thrives,” the Gannett Foundation, sponsored by the USA TODAY Network’s parent company Gannett Inc., will offer more than a dozen grants totaling more than $2.3 million to organizations trying to improve their communities. 

In the first step of “A Community Thrives,” we heard from 944 organizations across 45 states, the District of Columbia and Guam with projects designed to have a positive impact on the community around them.

Now the Sioux Falls nonprofits, whose work in the community covers a wide range of services affecting residents of all ages, are raising funds on the Mighty Cause crowdfunding platform.
