Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF)
The Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF) was established as a means for supporting community enhancement projects and philanthropic initiatives on Daniel Island and in the surrounding Cainhoy peninsula communities. This private 501 (c) 4 organization is financially supported by a Community Enhancement Fee on all resale transactions on the island. The structure of the DICF allows its financial resources to grow as the island grows, creating a legacy for the community for generations to come. Zero funding from Annual Property Owner Assessments goes toward the Community Fund.
The Daniel Island Community Fund Grants Committee is made up of Daniel Island residents, who are involved with all grants made.
Grant Applications will be accepted on April 1st and August 1st, 2018 for project funding from qualified non-profit organizations. Organizations may apply once annually with a maximum awards of up to $5,000. (*Additional funding for special projects may be considered on a case by case basis.) Awards will be announced at the end of May and end of September.
We are not accepting any more Grant Applications for 2018 at this time. We will update with 2019 Grant Applications as soon as we can.
