Established in 1999

Several years ago, the Leadership Dickson County Alumni Association began investigating the idea of starting a community foundation. As a matter of efficiency and cost-effectiveness, The Community Foundation for Dickson County chose to affiliate with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. This allows them to utilize the services of The Foundation, enabling them to have their own community foundation without duplicating all of the costs and reinventing systems and procedures. At the onset, The Community Foundation for Dickson County selected three categories to address: improved education, invigorated leadership and enhanced quality of life. Now with their foundation in place, the citizens are combining vision with capital, as a foundation for the future.
