Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF) September Update

September 05, 2023

The Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF) was established as a means for supporting community enhancement programs 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. The Daniel Island Community Fund’s board is made up of Daniel Island residents, who are involved with all grants made.

Thus far in 2023, the DICF sponsored some successful events such as the Concert in the Park, Field of Honor, the Independence Day Celebration, the Acoustic Guitar Series, the Danziger Cup Kids Fishing Tournament, the Rotary Duck Race, and more still to come!

In addition to events on the island, our Daniel Island Community Fund has awarded over $409,400 in grants through our April 1st and August 1st grant cycles to 39 local nonprofit organizations. Those that received a grant are listed below.
