Local Business Leaders Give Back in a New Way
July 19, 2017
The Daniel Wildman Charitable Fund & The Kevin Dillard Charitable Fund of The Community Foundation
When attorney George Snead suggested giving through The Community Foundation, the idea was appealing to LifeCare Medical Transports President and CEO Kevin Dillard and Vice President Dan Wildman.
“I’d like to do something while I’m alive to see it,“ Kevin told the foundation. “Like giving someone flowers -- you like to do it in person so you can see the enjoyment.”
Creating endowment funds at The Community Foundation is a powerful way the two business leaders can help our community – now and forever. Donor Advised funds at the foundation provide a simple, impactful and personal approach to giving. The LifeCare founders can stay actively involved by suggesting meaningful uses for gifts from their charitable funds.
Kevin grew up in Spotsylvania and Dan grew up in Stafford. Their experience running volunteer rescue squads led them to co-found LifeCare in 1994. Back then, patients who needed transport to a nursing facility and patients who needed urgent emergency care all relied on one locally available ambulance. Today, LifeCare has 135 ambulances and is one of Virginia’s largest providers of health care transportation services.
For anyone who wants to give back to our region, The Community Foundation provides a range of efficient and effective charitable giving opportunities.

With their roots in volunteer rescue services, the two entrepreneurs have always been committed to preserving and growing our region as a great place to live and work.
As their company’s reach has grown, they have been able to do more and more. In just one of many examples, the company dedicated a new purple ambulance when long-time colleague Linda Brown was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The vehicle raises awareness of the illness and shares Dillard and Wildman’s commitment to excellent care and compassionate service.
