DCFConnecting People Who Care
Ways To Give
People who care about Delaware's quality of life -- now and in the future -- are making a difference by establishing charitable funds at the Delaware Community Foundation. We help individuals, families, businesses and organizations carry out their charitable planning and giving in a way that works for their own financial circumstances and philanthropic goals.

Are you considering starting a donor advised fund because you want to remain actively involved in suggesting uses for your gift? Or, would you prefer to establish an unrestricted fund so that your gift may meet ever-changing community needs? How about showing deserving students you care by opening a scholarship fund? You can choose from a number of types of charitable funds that can be established for as little as $10,000.

We can help you plan your legacy to support the causes that matter to you for generations to come; providing you with tax savings now or in some cases, income for life. If you are new to charitable giving, our Fund Builder program can help you get started for a nominal investment.

Our Fund For Women, African American Empowerment of Delaware, The Next Generation and Youth Philanthropy Boards all demonstrate the power of collective giving and philanthropy in supporting the causes they care about, and offer opportunities for community involvement.

Nearly 200 nonprofit organizations have established endowment funds with the Delaware Community Foundation. The Arts Consortium of Delaware (ArtCo) built a $21.5 million endowment and placed it at the Delaware Community Foundation as the Delaware Arts Stabilization Fund to provide long-term stability arts organizations throughout the First State. The Rodel Foundation of Delaware, a supporting organization of the Delaware Community Foundation, focuses on improving public policy, supporting best practices, and engaging the public in improving education.

We offer a variety of giving opportunities and can help you develop what will work best for you. Please feel free to contact us to arrange for a personal one-on-one consultation.
