A Story of Local Giving

Aidan McDonald has spent several years working for DRIVE, a five-county council of governments devoted to supporting economic development in the region. While his professional life largely revolves around building stronger communities, Aidan knew he wanted to continue this work in a personal capacity as well. Foundation funds can start at only $500, allowing younger donors like Aidan the chance to get involved in local community giving early.

"While I certainly could have waited until later, I was motivated to set up the Aidan McDonald Donor Advised Fund so I can be an active participant in my own philanthropy now. By engaging in thoughtful, disciplined giving throughout my lifetime, I can maximize and focus my impact in the community." (Aidan McDonald, Fundholder)

Danville's Mission

Every donor has those causes and organizations for which he or she is most passionate. Many people support a community foundation as a way of saying thank you to the community where they live or work. Others see it as a way to ensure the future of their community. Each person's wealth and social/economic background can make a difference. Community Giving Foundation: Danville provides a charitable vehicle to support the greater Danville area, both now and into the future.

With over 90 funds supporting a wide variety of interests and causes, Community Giving Foundation: Danville continues to invest in the betterment of its community and residents by awarding grants and scholarships annually.



Grants Awarded

Community Giving Foundation: Danville makes grant investments in the community each year. Annually, it invests over $240,000 to local nonprofit organizations and high school and college students.

2022 Event Summary

In 2007, Danville's board extended their personal commitments to the people in their community by establishing the "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" campaign through their own individual donations. Many years later, this unrestricted fund continues to provide grants to meet the current and pressing needs of the Danville area, and provides an avenue for everyone to participate in community philanthropy. More than $70,000 has been granted to the Danville community from the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fund since its creation. The annual Holiday Happenings event also benefits the Neighbors Helping Neighbors fund, supporting pressing needs in the Danville community.


Creating a Legacy

There is a place for you here! Through the collective work of neighbors, families, businesses, and nonprofits, the Community Giving Foundation: Danville will continue to leave a greater impact in your community for years to come.

Donors can help meet local charitable needs by supporting current Danville funds or by creating a fund in their own name to establish a personal charitable legacy. Walk through our Giving Workbook or contact a member of Danville's board or Foundation staff to discuss how you can partner with your local community foundation to make a difference in the greater Danville area.
