The Friends of the Pound House Foundation (FPHF) is a 501(c)3 organization.

Your donation allows the FPHF to continue restoration and maintenance of the Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead.  More importantly, however, we will be able to continue developing and offering quality educational programs to our local school children and to our community.  We are also closer to  obtaining a much needed pavilion that will expand the programs and services we are able to offer.

Please consider making a donation to our museum today.

•  To serve as a source and resource for the community’s charitable and nonprofit organizations who are  an integral part of the community’s good will and well-being.



The Foundation works closely with the Austin Community Foundation to ensure the work of the Foundation operates and complies with the laws governing nonprofit organizations.

The Dripping Springs Community Library is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Government Entity which provides free services to all residents living within, or any person employed within Hays County as well as the Dripping Springs Independent School District.

Dripping Springs Council of PTAs serves the 7-member PTAs of the Dripping Springs ISD.  
Council serves as a district-wide resource and training avenue for Texas PTA and strives to organize community events for all DSISD schools that serve the mission of PTA.
PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

In 2004, a small group of community volunteers got together with the idea of helping the elderly of Dripping Springs, with a focus of keeping them living independently at home. The Friends Foundation came to life in March 2004. Several years later, with the help of our members, supporters, volunteers and the community, we now have many outstanding programs which take care of our valuable senior citizens. Our Daily Bread is The Friends Foundation's flagship program along with financial assistance (income qualifying), Philips Lifeline Med-Alert and smoke alarm installation.

 

The goal of the Friends of the Dripping Springs Community Library is to promote the use of the Library, to foster an appreciation of its cultural and educational value to the community, and encourage and support improvement of the Library’s resources and services.

 

As we look to the future-and the ever-changing needs of our growing community-we invite you to join the Friend’s efforts to keep the Library vital and relevant. Your membership donation directly benefits and your volunteer time supports both the Library and our community. Join us, as we champion the community’s valuable asset, the Library!
