About Us

The Community Foundation of Dickinson County, Inc. was established in 1999, by a group of civic minded individuals who believed in Dickinson County. Whether they grew up here, or journeyed from another location, these visionaries planned to secure the future for our communities, by establishing the Foundation with an Endowed Founder’s Fund. Since the original investment of $250K the Foundation has grown to over $12M in assets. Through growth and wise investment choices, the Foundation has granted over $5.2M to area non-profit organizations. The mission of the Community Foundation is to connect donors with their charitable giving priorities, serve as a resource for local non-profits organizations and provide leadership to the communities.
