Historial Perspective

In 1954, a group of far-sighted business leaders created the Sioux Falls Development Foundation, a non-profit economic development corporation focused on improving the economy of the Sioux Falls region. The Foundation is widely recognized for helping create one of the most vibrant, secure and growing economies in the nation. The organization has a long and storied history, thanks to the many individuals who have been instrumental in creating and continuing the Development Foundation legacy.
