Creating Economic Opportunity on Cheyenne River and Beyond
Established in 2000, Four Bands Community Fund is a nonprofit organization that has emerged as a leader in the Native American community and economic development movement. We are a leading organization on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation as well as in the state of South Dakota in the areas of small business development, business lending, financial literacy, and youth entrepreneurship. Our programs and services translate the traditional Lakota values of self-sufficiency, wise resource management, and a spirit of entrepreneurship into practical applications for today’s modern economy.
OUR PURPOSE is to create opportunities for individuals, businesses, and communities who are committed to financial independence and entrepreneurship.
OUR MISSION is to create economic opportunity by helping people build strong and sustainable small businesses and increase their financial capability to create assets and wealth.
OUR VISION is one where opportunities for economic prosperity are available to everyone. By investing in those who don’t have ready access to financial resources, we strive to break the cycle of poverty.
