Update: Dexter Community Fund Challenge Match Campaign

The Dexter Community Fund (DCF) recently announced that they are 1/3 of the way towards their goal of raising $100,000. The $100,000 Challenge Match Campaign kicked off in October and will run until Dec. 31, 2019. Generous supporters have already contributed $32,000 towards the$100,000 goal. They need your help to raise $68,000 more by the end of the year.  Now through Dec. 31, your donation will have double the impact!

DCF invites all community members to consider making a year-end gift to the Dexter Community Fund. As you celebrate the holiday season, give a gift that will keep on giving. By donating today, your donation will go twice as far!

All donations and pledges made to DCF by Dec. 31, 2019 will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000 in total gifts, by a group of local donors. Multi-year pledges (up to 5 years) are encouraged with the full amount of the pledge being doubled.
