Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

Dexter Community Fund

The Dexter Community Fund (DCF) was established in 2014. The DCF is dedicated to investing in Dexter to enrich the quality of life within the community. The Fund is advised by a local Advisory Committee made up of 10-20 community members. Our goal is to raise $2 million in current giving and $2 million in planned giving by 2020.

The DCF is a source of community capital that will be available to support and invest in a wide range of initiatives, projects and organizations that enrich the quality of life in Dexter. As the Fund grows, it will support projects and non-profit organizations across a number of areas: arts and culture, education, the environment, youth, senior services, health and wellness, human services, and/or community improvement.

The Dexter Community Fund is also a vehicle for those interested in supporting Dexter to give back to the community. Members of the DCF’s advisory group have made personal contributions to establish the Fund, with hopes that additional contributions from local residents, businesses, community groups and anyone with roots or ties to Dexter will help grow the Fund.
