What is The 

The Community Foundation 
of the Dan River Region is an 
independent, public charity 
established in September 1996 
by a steering committee of local 
civic leaders to gather permanent 
funds to support our area. 

While the Foundation works 
with donors to establish 
funds to benefit any geographic area, our 
primary service area is Danville/Pittsylvania 
County Virginia and Caswell County North 
Carolina. Donations are also being sought 
to build up resources for South Boston/ 
Halifax County with consideration being 
given to other neighboring counties.

Community foundations are established 
to manage a collection of separate funds 
created by individuals and corporations 
- a community of donors - to enhance 
the quality of life in a local area. These 
funds are pooled and invested under the 
direction of a board of directors comprised 
of community leaders. Income from the 
funds is distributed in the form of grams 
and scholarships. The first community 
foundation was created in 1914 in 
Cleveland, Ohio. There are now more than 
700 community foundations nationwide, 
controlling aggregate assets in excess of 


$25 billion. Community foundations are 
the fastest growing form of philanthropy 
in America today and often are in the 
vanguard of charitable giving. 

The Community Foundation is fully tax- 
exempt as an organization described in 
Sections 501(c)(3) and 1 70(b) (A)(vi) of the 
Internal Revenue Code. 

Our Vision 

To recognize needs and provide resources 

Partners in the 
Dan River Region 

The Danville Regional Foundation and the 
Community Foundation of the Dan River 
Region are often confused by their names. 

At least once a week the offices are fielding 
calls looking for the other. While the 
processes for community investments are 
quite different, our common interest is what 
ties us together - to improve and enrich 
the Dan River Region. The Community 
Foundation works to help generous citizens 
find outlets for their financial resources 
from large to small and DRF works to make 
larger scale investments that impact the 
region through specific program areas such 
as education, economic vitality community 
wellness, and civic capacity. 

Through the Community Foundation of the 
Dan River Region, DRF is able to meet the 

to improve the quality of life in our 
community and to serve the wishes of our 

Our Mission 

To improve and enrich the lives of people 
in our community by encouraging the 
generosity of donors; by receiving, 
managing and distributing important 
resources; and by meeting a variety of 
charitable purposes in our community 

needs of a larger number of organizations 
that don’t quite fit in any of these areas. 

By providing funds to the Community 
Foundation, DRF can help provide much 
needed assistance to more immediate 
needs of local organizations. The Dan River 
Region is fortunate to have such a wide and 
diverse network of non-profit organizations. 
From physical to psychological; to 
educational to community services, the 
abundance of resources in this area is a 
reflection of the giving spirit of its residents. 
DRF is proud to call The Community 
Foundation of the Dan River Region a 
partner in making community investments.

Continues tofonn workforce

launches work ready initiative 

Since 2008, the Community Foundation 
of the Dan River has 
sewed as 

the fiscal agent of the Dan River Region 
Collaborative and has been an active 
member of its steering committee. During 
this five-year timeframe, the Collaborative 
has leveraged $1.4 million for Southern 
Virginia primarily due to the successful, 
innovative workforce development 
partnerships it has helped to 

This year the Collaborative 
spearheaded an initiative to 
position Southern Virginia 
to become the first region in 
the Commonwealth to take 
the challenge of measuring

for most gifts under federal law. 

W r e multiply the impact of gift 

dollars by pooling them with other 
gifts and grants.

benefit the community forever and 
help create personal legacies. 


We are a community leader, 

convening agencies and

the region’s skill sets of its workforce 
and positioning the region to earn the 
designation, "Certified Work Ready 

It is the Collaborative’s position that the 
National Career Readiness Certificate 
(NCRC) is the employers solution 
to verify workplace skills of reading 
comprehension, applied math and 
locating information and validate our 
region as work ready. 

To earn this work ready designation, the 
region of Danville and Martinsville and 
the counties of Halifax, Henry Pittsylvania 

and Patrick, has agreed publicly to the 
following by July 1, 2014: 

• 2,311 individuals in the workforce 
with a NCRC 

* 287 employers who have signed on to 
support the region's efforts to achieve 
this -status 

While education attainment is important 
to the region’s future success, the ability 
to qualify foundational skills, required 
by employers, is invaluable in today's 
competitive business environment.

“I appreciate your assistance 
in expediting this agreement. 

I am certain that the Rotary

We invite you to join the thousands of 
donors who are working through The 
Community Foundation to build a strong 
future for our community. 

Perhaps you have had a lifelong 
commitment to a particular charitable 
field and wish to support that interest 
in perpetuity Yon may have a specific 
charity or charities in mind to receive 
income from your fund - or you may 
prefer an unrestricted gift, allowing the 
Foundation to determine where needs 
and opportunities are greatest in the 
community. You, and perhaps your family 
may choose to be involved as advisors 
to a fund.

The Community Foundation encourages 
potential donors to also consult with their 
attorneys, accountants and tax advisors 
to learn more about charitable giving 
and establishing a fund through estate 

Donors can create their own Named fund 
for a minimum of S 10,000 ($25,000 for 
scholarships) or they can contribute in 
any amount to an existing fund of the 

Unrestricted Funds give the Foundation 
maximum flexibility to respond creatively 
and effectively to the community's most 
compelling needs and opportunities. 
These funds are among the Foundations 
most important assets, capable of 
addressing community needs as they 
1 change over time. 


Field of Interest Funds are restricted 
\ by the donor at the time of creation to 
support a particular area of interest, 
such as children, the elderly, the 
arts, or the environment, etc. Once 
established, Field of Interest funds 
can grow through gifts from others 
who see them as a way to address 
their own charitable interests. 

Designated Funds enable 
donors, at the time funds are 
established, to name one or more 

specific organizations to benefit from 
the fund permanently The Foundation 
ensures that the designated recipients 
receive support as long as they remain 
in existence and continue to fulfill the 
intended charitable purpose. 

Donor Advised Funds allow you 
to recommend which charitable 
organizations should receive grants 
from your fund and in what amounts. 
Many donors choose to give to multiple 
nonprofits through a donor-advised 
fund. Our board of directors is legally 
responsible for approving ait grants. 

Scholarship Funds allow our donors to 
invest in the future by helping deserving 
students in our community As the donor, 
you determine the criteria students must 
meet to receive your scholarship. Your 
gift can help students - from preschool 
to postgraduate - achieve their lifetime 
dreams. The Community Foundation 
provides the expertise to handle all of the 
application and selection process. 

Agency Endowment Funds allow 
nonprofit organizations (agencies) to 
create a permanent and predictable 
source of funding dedicated for their 
organization. The agency can add to the 
fund as well as individuals, organizations 
and businesses.
