Every Donation Counts!
In January 2019, the Daniel Island Community Foundation (our 501(c)3) set a goal to raise $5,000 per nonprofit for 12 local nonprofits. That is a total of $60,000! In addition to the DIC Foundation campaign, the Daniel Island Community Fund (our 501(c)4) has pledged to match $5,000 per nonprofit – which will double the funds raised by residents and businesses.
We are so close to meeting our goal of $60k by December 31st. To date, we are just $5,025 away! Please consider donating to the Daniel Island Community Foundation this month so that we can meet our goal and provide the below nonprofits at least $10k each in early January 2020.
