A commitment to service and community support

Dakota Gives partners with charities to provide support across our community.

The Dakota Gives mission

Education

Environment

Healthcare

Human Services

Arts and Culture

At Dakota, we're committed to giving back to the communities we belong to. With two offices and over thirty committed, passionate team members, we've made it our mission to give back. 

The goal of Dakota Gives is simple. We strive to give back to the community and partner with charities and organizations that match our values. 

Our core focus has been in five major areas, including: education, the environment, healthcare, human services, and arts and culture. 

 

 

Our community partners

Our first partnership was with Buckets of Love, which was started in 2017 by two sisters, Raegan and Payton Garnsey. They fill buckets with toys, games, crafts, stuffed animals, and more for kids ages 2-12. These buckets of Love are then donated to hospitals, homeless shelters, and to children in foster care, with the goal of spreading joy during hard times. 

Next, we partnered with The Paige Tibbetts Legacy Fund, which provides financial support to young adult cancer patients at Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center. By offering financial support to cover critical bills, patients are able to focus 100% on recovery.  

Our most recent partnership is with Cradles to Crayons: Ready For Learning. This program will ensure that 50,000 children throughout the Philadelphia Region will have everything they need to feel ready to learn, and empowers children to feel safe, valued and ready to learn during uncertain times.

And we aren't stopping there. To the right are all of our partners, past and present.
