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 annual on April 1st and August 1st 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.)
We are no longer accepting any more 2020 Grant Applications. Please check back in January 2021 for the next grant application cycle which will have an April 1, 2021 deadline. Grant Application is search engine specific, please use Internet Explorer when completing your application. Other search engines have previously caused issues with the application process and are not recommended for use.
Please note, if awarded, images may be used, but are not limited to social media, print, communications. etc.
