More Information About the Fund

Many people in Spearfish are receiving their federal stimulus checks and/or have the capacity to donate to those in need. At the same time, many in our community have lost income during this time and the stimulus check (delivery of which is often delayed for the poor) will not be enough to make ends meet. We are asking for your help in this effort to #ShareMyCheck and support those in need in our community. All funds will be distributed directly to fellow residents of the Spearfish community.

Direct cash payments will be $0-500 per individual depending on need and availability of funds. Applicants fill out a short form with an explanation of their need and the requested amount. Any money left in this fund by the end of June 2021 will be donated to a local non-profit serving low-income communities. None of the money in this fund will go toward operational costs for makeSPACE.

Applicants in need of relief funds can fill out an online form to confidentially provide basic information. After a phone call to verify information, payment can be made via check or Venmo/PayPal. Applicants must be 18 years or older to apply. All information will be kept strictly confidential and not shared with any outside agency or organization.

Physical applications for assitance can be obtained at Hudson Hall during the following times: Mondays 2-3pm, Wednesdays 10-11am, and Fridays 12-1pm.
