Volunteer Opportunities in Dublin, Ohio

Feb 11, 2022 | Blog

At the Dublin Community Foundation, our goal is simple, to raise funds to meet the identified needs of our residents, improving the quality of life for all within the Dublin community. While our focus is raising funds that we are then able to grant to local community organizations to support their mission, we also seek to be a collaborative resource and ambassador for those organizations within the community. 

As a community foundation, we seek to foster strong relationships within our community and show gratitude to the people, businesses, and organizations that make the Dublin community a great place to live and work. We strive to help create a more connected and caring community and encourage residents and corporate residents to do the same. 

The Dublin community is fortunate to have a number of nonprofit organizations that step in to meet the needs of our neighbors every day. It is important to us to raise awareness of the good works being done by local nonprofits and to encourage the entire community to support them, through monetary donations as well as to volunteer your time.
