Annual Operating Fund
There are numerous ways in which individuals, foundations and corporations can participate, including unrestricted annual gifts, designated gifts or grants to support priority DSCC's goals. Your gift to our Annual Operating Fund provides enduring reserves to sustain our work. All contributions are tax deductible. Previously, DSCC relied heavily on federal funding. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development tightened funding regulations, disallowing administrative costs and narrowing the scope of eligible programs. That source no longer meets the needs of our community. Today, DSCC requires philanthropic support in order to achieve our mission of advancing neighborhood vitality, through community empowerment, housing stabilization and real estate development.
