|The mission of the African American Empowerment Fund of Delaware is to establish a legacy of leadership in promoting philanthropy to fund causes important to the education, social and economic empowerment of African American Delawareans.
The initial goal of the AAEFD is to recruit 100 Founders who will pledge $1,000 over five years to support our work and mission. Since its official launch in June 2008, more than 80 people have raised $85,000 in cash with another $50,000 in pledges. To help boost membership, the Trustees of the Longwood Foundation provided a dollar for dollar matching grant of up to $50,000. By year-end 2009, the fund had met the full match.
There are many ways you can become involved or contribute to our cause. Whether you want to become a Founder, work with your church or other group to participate, or simply make a small donation -- every contribution is welcome.
