Discovery Bay Community Foundation was formed to help build and strengthen our community by bringing people and organizations together that want to make a difference. We are a tax-exempt public charity that raises funds and is dedicated to improving the quality of life in Discovery Bay. Our primary mission is to identify existing needs and concerns of the community and work together to resolve them.

Individuals, families, businesses and organizations can work with DBCF to create permanent charitable funds that help meet the challenges of the changing times in our community. The foundation invests and administers these funds along with helping those in need by providing volunteers for different causes when needed. We offer programs in and for our community that are not currently available.
