The Purpose of a Community Foundation is to connect people who care with causes that matter. As described above in our Mission Statement, we have a double purpose:
• Develop and manage opportunities for giving that provide donors and potential donors with the means for making a difference in the Dripping Springs community. When caring individuals want to have a positive effect on the lives of their neighbors, the Dripping Springs Community Foundation (DSCF) can help make that happen. Donations to the Foundation may support a specific purpose or the broader community, and the establishment of a Fund with the DSCF can provide tax benefits and the opportunity to meet long term objectives. See the page "For Donors" for more information.
• To provide support to local charities through grants that respond to emerging and changing needs and opportunities, and by giving visibility for the organizations to a different audience. Dripping Springs is growing rapidly and the needs of the community are shifting. Non-profits are awarded grants from the DSCF's Endowment Fund, and donors of other held funds may specify grants to charities that address their concerns. For more information, see the page "For Non-Profits".
