Bush Foundation President Talks About Nonprofit's Work

Bush Foundation President Jennifer Ford Reedy talked to South Dakota Public Radio about the foundation's mission and operations during a recent trip to Rapid City. 

Over the past 61 years, the Bush Foundation has made over $1 billion in grants to thousands of individuals and organizations across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native Nations within those states. The Foundation was established in 1953 by 3M Executive Archibald Bush and his wife Edyth.

Among recipients of the foundation's funding are the First Peoples Fund in Rapid City, which helps native artists be tradition bearers and leaders of social change; Destination Rapid City, which has helped revitalize downtown; and the Black Hills Knowledge Network.
