Funding and support for Dublin Arts Council’s popular Riverboxes project has been generously provided by a grant from The Dublin Foundation, which also supported the creation of the original Riverbox series. These small works of public art have been placed in Dublin parks with access to the Scioto River, and have been a treasured addition to our community. The project promotes family experiences, exploration of art and history and the opportunity for active engagement with spaces that members of our community may not otherwise discover. Dublin Arts Council thanks The Dublin Foundation for recognizing the value of this project, and for generously supporting the arts in our community.
The Dublin Counseling Center received a grant from the Dublin Foundation to develop a special support group for parents that had lost children. Start-up funds from the Foundation were utilized to develop the group, which was named “At a Loss.” The professionally facilitated group was founded by a member of the Dublin Community, and has been a vehicle of healing for parents grieving the loss of a child. The funds from the Dublin Foundation made the creation and ongoing work of this group possible.
The grant from the Dublin Foundation enabled the Dublin Historical Society to purchase a scanner and to develop a website. The website contains stories and descriptions of Dublin’s people and its growth from a settlement to a village and gives site visitors a taste of life in the 1800s and early 1900s. With the website, the Society can more effectively fulfill its mission of preserving history and educating the community on its past.
The Dublin Foundation’s grant was instrumental in helping Forty Plus of Central Ohio in our mission to support professionals in career transition. It allowed us to continue to provide up-to-date computer software and hardware to our members. These computers are essential tools in today’s competitive job market and we thank the Dublin Foundation for generously supporting the people in our community who are seeking better career opportunities.
The Dublin Foundation’s grant to Leadership Dublin was extremely helpful to our program. It allowed us to up-grade our computer equipment, without having to raise our tuition for either our adult or youth programs. As a result of no increase, we were able to recruit our largest adult class in many years and our largest youth class ever! We will always be indebted to the Dublin Fund for their timely and gracious assistance.
