About Us

The Community Foundation of Dickinson County's primary mission is to encourage philanthropy for the benefit of our community and we have been helping our donors put their charitable dollars to work addressing the concerns most important to them since 1999.

People who give through our Community Foundation are motivated by the desire to give in a way that does the most good, bringing visible results. We believe you are one of those people. As the single resource and contact for reaching a number of groups and organizations working toward the betterment of life for those living in Dickinson County, we offer you a better way to give.

Our objectives are to encourage you to establish funds in the foundation as a way to achieve your charitable intentions, to build a permanent endowment from which charitable grants be made, and to advance philanthropic activities in the county.

We realize philanthropy is a very personal decision. If it's important to you, it's important to us. We are here to make your giving easy and more effective while keeping individual charitable goals as the number one priority. By establishing an endowed fund with us, your gift will continue to affect generations to come as grants are awarded from the investment's earnings. You give through, not to, our community foundation.

Long term investment of capital given by individuals, organizations and corporations, allows us to make grants to enhance the quality of life in the community now and in the future. These grants benefit youth, education, arts and culture, human services, health care, and other charitable purposes.

Our staff and our 20-member board of directors work hard to maintain high donor confidence about proper management of charitable gifts. Affirming our commitment to financial security, transparency and accountability, the Foundation is certified in compliance with the National Standards of the U.S. Community Foundations Program for our high level of ethical and operational integrity, donor services, and accountability in the community foundation sector.
