The Currituck-Dare Community Foundation is a growing family of philanthropic funds, source of grants for local causes, partners for donors and affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation. The CDCF was founded in 1999 and is led by a local volunteer advisory board that helps build community assets through the creation of permanent endowments, makes grants and leverages leadership—all for the benefit of Currituck and Dare counties.
The CDCF board advises the Currituck-Dare Community Fund, the unrestricted community grantmaking fund, to support local needs. The competitive grants program is held annually. Advisory board members live and work in Currituck and Dare counties, positioning them to strategically leverage resources, meet local needs and access opportunities. In addition to Hoehne, board members include Lisa Rose (vice president), Di Small (secretary/treasurer), Sheila Davies, Nina Foster, Cynthia Jarvis, Sophie Jordan, Donnie King, Daniel La Rue, Vickie Smith Moore and Ginger Webster.
