DCFConnecting People Who Care

Welcome to the Delaware Community Foundation

At the Delaware Community Foundation, we connect people who care with the causes they care about, helping individuals and organizations create charitable funds that become permanent sources of funding for charitable causes. This year, we took the first steps on a journey of growth and transformation. Read more in our 2014 Annual Report!
