non-profit organizations and public agencies for their programs and
The Foundation has made over 2,500 grants totaling more than $38 million. Established to ensure that funding for worthwhile community programs
would continue after his death, the Foundation preserves the memory and
philanthropic commitment of Charles H. Dater (1912-1993) and his

provided them with the opportunity to share their success with their
community. The Foundation has no full time staff and is guided by an
active Board of Directors.
