The Davidson Community Foundation's mission is to enhance the lives of residents of Davidson, NC, now and for generations to come, by working with local leaders and donors to build and deploy a community fund to address Davidson's most pressing needs. This citizen-driven initiative is designed to substantially expand local philanthropy and direct it to where it's most needed.
Right now, the community's most pressing need is support for those suffering from the coronavirus' impact on health, lives, jobs and the economy. To help address these urgent needs the current focus of the Davidson Community Foundation is to build and deploy and Emergency Fund. Through grants to local nonprofit organizations, the Emergency Fund will augment the ability of the Davidson community to respond to the crisis.
Over time, the Davidson Community Foundation's aim is to provide transformative grants to local agencies to address longer-term, high-impact needs, including the preservation of the West Davidson community, affordable housing and other emerging community needs, both urgent and aspirational.
Governed by a local Board of Advisors, with guidance from a Community Needs Council and a Grants Committee composed of members representing diverse community perspectives, all funds contributed to the Davidson Community Foundation will go directly to help the local community.
