25th Anniversary

The Community Foundation’s Board of Directors and staff are excited to celebrate 25 years of service and community impact in the Dan River Region! 

We recognize achieving this milestone is a result of strong leadership and growth cultivated by the generosity and support of donors like you.


As we prepare for the future, The Foundation’s Board and staff are committed to enhanced development in pursuit of our mission: to improve and enrich area lives through the generosity of donors. In recognition of our 25th Anniversary, The Foundation is kicking off an appeal with the purpose of raising funds for key program areas including Emergency Preparedness, Animal Services, Arts & Culture, Community Development, Health and Wellness, Education and Youth Development, Human Services, and Scholarships. 

As we collaborate on the future wellbeing of our region, please consider a gift to one or more of these worthwhile program areas or a fund of your choice! Gifts of all sizes are welcome. As always, our staff are here to help you personalize your charitable giving goals.


25th Anniversary Celebration Open House

CFDRR would like to thank the 58 guests who celebrated with us at our 25th Anniversary Open House on Sept. 10! The celebration included speakers and spontaneous sharing of stories highlighting CFDRR’s history of impact. CFDRR held a surprise $2,500 grant drawing in recognition of nonprofit organizations that are so vital in helping CFDRR connect donors to the resources and causes important to them and our community. Congratulations to the Virginia Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, serving Danville-Pittsylvania County, winner of the drawing! CFDRR’s 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign will run until Dec. 31, with the goal of raising $25,000.
