The mission of the Dover Foundation is to foster community spirit, neighborliness, cooperation, friendships and service within the town of Dover.
The Dover Foundation is an independent, non-profit, 501-C3, all volunteer organization that has served the Dover community since 1947. The Foundation is most known for outstanding theatrical performances held in Dover, featuring Dover and surrounding community residents. In June of each year, scholarship awards are granted to Dover students, and community grants are made to the Dover Community. More than 500 Dover high school seniors have received over $600,000 in scholarship grants.
Many cross generational projects have also benefitted from its generous support, including the Channing Pond skating rink, and tennis and summer playground programs (1950s-1960s); Dover Choral Society, Dover Dig, and Boy Scout cabin rebuilding (1970s); new stage curtains for the Dover Town House (1981); auditorium lighting for the high school (1993); Dover Music Festival, sound systems at the high school auditorium/theater, and Dover athletic programs (2000-2010s).
We thank the Dover community for their support and look forward to many more years of great theater and community service.
Your support and contributions are vital in helping us achieve our goals! Every donation makes a difference, and we greatly appreciate your support. Together, we can make a positive impact. Thank you for being part of our journey.
