About the Centerville-Washington Foundation

The word “community” implies fellowship and sharing. A “community foundation” is a tax-exempt public charity built on the concept of people helping people to improve the quality of life in a particular geographic area. More than 700 community foundations nationwide serve their individual regions. 

Individuals, through gifts and bequests, establish permanent endowment funds and other types of funds with their community foundation to help respond to emerging community issues and opportunities.
Established in 1998, the Foundation offers you the opportunity to improve the quality of life in the Centerville-Washington Township community.

Designed for permanence and the benefit of the Centerville-Washington Township area, the Foundation is the vehicle for caring people who want to support local charities, scholarships and community change, not just today but long past their lifetimes.

The Centerville-Washington Foundation is a way to help yourself as you help your community.

Your needs and opportunities are uniquely yours.
No two people have exactly the same charitable interests or same financial situation.

We understand the spectrum of people we serve. Some have modest means, while others have substantially more. Some wish to direct precisely which charities will benefit, yet others want the Foundation to decide, based on the community’s changing needs. Some need to earn income from the assets they wish to donate to charities, and others do not.

The Centerville-Washington Foundation understands your needs and will work to find exactly the right methods for you.
Our foundation is a component of The Dayton Foundation, which serves the Greater Miami Valley area. Our unique team approach allows the Centerville-Washington community to benefit from local leadership and profit from resources pooled with others in the area for investment growth. All this translates into additional donor services and expertise for you.
