DCF Legacy Society Honorees

The Legacy Society of the Dearborn Community Foundation (DCF) is a group of individuals, organizations and other entities that have made a dedicated effort to invest in our community through endowments at the Foundation. These honorees live in Dearborn County or have strong ties to our community.

Legacy Society members have contributed a significant charitable endowment at DCF to support charitable needs in our community.

Some have established scholarship funds, while others have established designated or field of interest funds that support charitable organizations and causes in our community.
