A Commitment to Service and Community

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

The Dakota Gives Mission

At Dakota, we’re committed to giving back to the communities we belong to.

With two offices and over fifty committed, passionate team members, we’ve made it our mission to partner with micro charities and organizations that match our values.

Our goal is to support these organizations through not just donations but digital marketing and video support, so that their message and efforts can reach an even wider audience.

Our Core Focus In Five Major Areas








Human Services


Arts and Culture

Our Community Partners

In June of 2017 Raegan and Payton Garnsey founded the nonprofit Buckets of Love Foundation. They fill buckets with toys, games, crafts, stuffed animals and whatever else is appropriate for kids ages 2-12. These buckets of love are then donated to hospitals, homeless shelters, and to children in foster care. Their mission over the past years has been to put a smile on a deserving child’s face. To date, they have filled over 10,000 Buckets of Love and have had at least one bucket donated in every single state.
