Sioux Empire Realtors® for Kids (RFK) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2008 by the Realtor® Association of the Sioux Empire, which includes all communities in Minnehaha, Lincoln, Lake, McCook, and Turner counties.

RFK relies heavily on our Realtor® members and the community's generous donations. We also work with several of our affiliate members including mortgage lenders and title companies to raise money to help kids in the greater Sioux Falls community. We welcome your fundraising ideas and participation.

RFK is a voluntary organization, governed by a volunteer board of directors. We need you to become an active part of RFK in order to be more successful in our community.
