What is the Delaware Community Foundation?

Since 1986, the Delaware Community Foundation has been connecting people who care with the causes they care about by helping them establish charitable funds and provide grants to the nonprofit organizations they wish to support. With more than 1,200 funds, over $225 million in assets and annual grants of about $15 million, the Foundation provides a lasting source of charitable funding to benefit Delawareans now and for many generations to come.

To learn more about the work of the Foundation and our involvement throughout the First State, you can view the following News Releases or our recent Publications.
