The South Dakota State University Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of South Dakota State University. The Foundation was created in 1946.
The mission of the SDSU Foundation is: “Enhancing excellence by cultivating generosity and treasuring the loyalty of all we serve.” The SDSU Foundation raises and administers scholarship funds that benefit thousands of students and spearheads private fundraising campaigns for multimillion-dollar capital projects. To connect back to the university, the SDSU Foundation uses the words South Dakota State University, a line, and the word Foundation directly underneath as its logo. All rules governing the Institutional Logo pertain to the SDSU Foundation's logo as well, including incorrect uses.
The SDSU Foundation Wordmark may be enlarged to any size that is practical and necessary, but should not be reduced to a size that reduces the height of the wordmark to less than 3/8 inch when the words are used alone or 1/2 inch when the logo mark is used within a box.
Guidelines for Reproducing
When the wordmark is reduced or enlarged, it should always be treated as one unit. All elements should be sized proportionately. The SDSU Foundation Wordmark should not be built. The wordmark should be used as a graphic, not typed, and it is available from the SDSU Foundation.
The SDSU Foundation Tagline – Impact Greatness
The tagline can be used alone or with the SDSU Foundation logo and it is available from the SDSU Foundation.
