DCFConnecting People Who Care

Welcome to the Delaware Community Foundation
2014 Annual Report

In our printed report, the Leslie Stanford Fund for the YWCA was listed under the wrong organization, and the Anthony & Catherine Fusco Foundation was not included in the 2014 Business Partners. We apologize and thank Ms. Stanford and the Fusco Foundation for their generosity!

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.

Give: Ebola Orphans Crisis FundEbola

Many of us feel at a loss for how to help with the Ebola crisis. Here's an opportunity to help by supporting the Ebola Orphans Crisis Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Through this fund, caring people from Delaware and the region are helping provide food and security for children in Liberia who have been orphaned during the Ebola crisis and recent wars. The goal is to keep the children at home, where they are less likely to contract Ebola, by ensuring they have food and don't need to go out in search of something to eat.

Consider making a gift to the Ebola Orphans Crisis Fund . Visit and search by keyword Ebola to make your tax-deductible gift.
