Giving back. Paying forward. Having heart.
-Michelle Cramer, Past President, The Dublin Community Foundation
As a community-based, non-profit organization, we bring together people, organizations and businesses to make a difference. We’re your neighbors and co-workers – and like you – we care about Dublin.
We work collaboratively. We identify needs. We maximize opportunities. We listen with our hearts and we act as prudent stewards.
Since our inception in 1982, we have supported community causes and projects such as the Muirfield Village Garden Club Blue Star Memorial, Maria’s Message and KidSMILES. And in the past decade, we have expanded our circle of community influence by collaborating with the Nick Rozanski Fund and the First Responders Scholarship Fund.
Today, more than ever, we are catalysts for community improvement and conveners of community resources. Current major initiatives include supporting the Columbus Metropolitan Library Dublin Branch and collaborating with the City of Dublin to identify future needs.
In 1982, the Dublin Fund of the Columbus Foundation was created through an endowment from several Village of Dublin residents. The Emerald Ball served as the Dublin Funds annual fundraiser. In 2004, the Dublin Fund received nonprofit 501 (c) (3) status and the name was changed to the Dublin Foundation. In 2017, during a transformational era for our community, the board adopted The Dublin Community Foundation as the new name to reflect a renewed focus.
