Every time you help somebody stand up, you help humanity rise.”

Ways you can make a difference

Giving back and paying forward are two things that Dublin does best. We live and work among family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who continually give of their time, talents, services and financial resources. Dublin embraces this culture of caring, service and volunteerism and The Dublin Community Foundation celebrates your efforts.

The Dublin Community Foundation was founded on the principle that with success comes social responsibility. With your support and the expertise of The Columbus Foundation, we continue to embark on a journey of serving each other, identifying needs and raising funds to make a difference. Together, we have the potential to create innovative and engaging initiatives and collaborative platforms that result in a sustainable model of giving back and paying forward.

What is a community foundation?

Community foundations are nonprofit organizations designed to strengthen communities through effective philanthropy and civic engagement.  They fulfill their mission through fundraising, charitable fund management, grantmaking, and convenings with donors, financial advisors, local nonprofits and foundation partners. They also serve as advocates for community needs.

We help fulfill your philanthropic intent

We make giving easy and effective, accepting a wide variety of gifts and providing donors a number of charitable options. Individuals and corporations may contribute cash, stocks, property and bequests, or establish a fund in your name or in the name of a loved one.

We know our community

We have an in-depth understanding of the issues, opportunities and resources that shape our community. We monitor all areas of community need, including human services, education, the environment, healthcare, the arts and amenities.
