Welcome to The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region
The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region was established to improve and enrich area lives through the generosity of donors. Our Foundation is a public charity, established in September 1996, by a steering committee of civic leaders. Our mission is to meet a variety of social, educational, cultural and other charitable needs from Martinsville – Henry County to South Boston and Halifax County areas of Virginia and includes parts of neighboring North Carolina counties as well.
The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region offers several types of charitable funds.
Our Professional Advisors can help you choose the one that matches your personal approach to giving and your charitable intent.
