Strengthen rural communities.

Our program partners know that supporting Dakota Resources programs, projects, and events accomplishes so much more than a simple demonstration of support. Our investors care about the communities we serve and the people who call them home, and their commitment to a thriving rural allows us to empower rural shapers to dream big.

Strengthening rural communities is possible by investing long-term capital in Dakota Resources’ Capital Investment Fund. Your investment is pooled with grant funding and other investments and is then re-lent to small, rural economic development organizations, many of whom have limited access to capital. In addition, investments in our Capital Investment Fund may help you meet Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) requirements.

And as a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), you can trust that Dakota Resources meets or exceeds standards set by the U.S. Treasury each year.

To learn more about how your investment can support projects, initiatives, and capacity in rural communities ready to thrive in their own way, connect with our team today.
