About Us



 

 To seek and develop opportunities that give the DSCF the means to provide financial assistance, guidance and development support to those nonprofit and charitable organizations that serve the community. 

 

 To serve as a source and resource for the community’s charitable and nonprofit organizations who are  an integral part of the community’s good will and well-being.

 

The Foundation works closely with the Austin Community Foundation to ensure the work of the Foundation operates and complies with the laws governing nonprofit organizations.


The Austin Community Foundation manages over $100 million in assets in more than 900 funds.

The Dripping Springs Community Foundation's funds are managed through this capable and

experienced organization which lends both legal and fiscal support to the Foundation.


Thanks to the generous support of many, the Foundation is now able to make significant grants to

deserving groups. We rely entirely on the generosity of those individuals, families and members

of the business community who wish to contribute. No gift is too small or too large and all are

vital to the Foundation's work.


 



The Dripping Springs Community Foundation was established in 1999 by filing with the Secretary of State. IRS issued 501(3)(c) status in 2000. A relationship with the Austin Community Foundation was established and all funds deposited with that organization, and operations were conducted under ACF as well.


From its formation, the Foundation was seen as a community resource for the generation of funds for all nonprofit organizations and needs in the community. Funds included Keep Dripping Springs Beautiful Fund, The Gathering Fund and the Land Use Planner Fund for the City. The Foundation also served as the nonprofit for the Dripping Springs Elementary School as a fundraiser for the teachers to replace educational items not covered by insurance when the school suffered a mold problem.


Currently the Foundation's funds include the Dr. Harvey and Gloria Evans Fund, Hancock/Hanks

Family Fund and Dripping Springs/Wimberley Girl Scout Fund.
