The Stewartville Area Community Foundation (SACF) is funded through the charitable gifts given by people in the Stewartville Area. These monetary gifts are invested and grow and become the basis for a permanent charitable endowment fund. The money earned in this permanent fund is given back to the community for specific areas of need. SACF is a Minnesota non-profit corporation that is classified as tax exempt under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue code and is an affiliate of the Rochester Area Foundation. This affiliation offers enhanced investment income advantages to donors and to the SACF. The SACF builds and maintains a pool of funds from many donors to provide a perpetual source of income to meet the charitable needs of our community.
