As we enter the Thanksgiving season in this year like no other, we at the DCF want to express our gratitude for your confidence and your trust. We recognize the enormous responsibility of empowering your charitable gifts. To do this, we use three primary strategies:
- We invest the charitable dollars you have given to us, striving to minimize volatility and maximize growth while preserving capital,
- We work to help you achieve your philanthropic goals, and
- We provide community leadership, helping you and others in our community of givers learn about evolving community needs and how you can make a difference. This role has proven to be particularly important during the pandemic, as we work with you and other fundholders to maximize the impact of your philanthropy.
Through the ongoing market tumult, we continue to have confidence in our investment strategies to minimize short-term volatility and grow the assets you have given us over the longer term.
Because we are working remotely, we are providing only online access to fund statements for the quarter ending September 30, 2020, in lieu of printing and mailing statements. Review fund activity 24/7 by logging on to DonorCentral® at edonorcentral.com/login_0196.asp. If you need assistance logging in or have other questions, contact Chris Chapdelaine at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302.856.4393.
Statements include each fund’s relevant investment pool performance. Each pool’s full dashboard, along with SEI’s Quarterly Review, is available at delcf.org/investments.
In addition to investing your charitable gifts, we are here to help you maximize the impact of those dollars. We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your charitable goals and how to ensure the greatest impact possible on the causes you care about. Please feel free to contact us to set up a conversation with a member of the DCF team.
In addition to one-on-one conversations about charitable giving, we encourage you to register for our upcoming community conversation about opportunity and equity. We hope you will join us for our third annual Building Opportunity keynote presentation on Nov. 19, when Wes Moore will discuss his book Five Days: The Fiery Reckoning of an American City. For more information, visit delcf.org/keynote.
We thank you for your continuing partnership in our work to build opportunity for all people of Delaware. Should you have any questions about your statement, please contact Chris Chapdelaine, donor services coordinator, at email@example.com or 302.504.5230.
With best regards and thanks for all you do,
President & CEO
