At the DCF, we envision a Delaware where generosity expands opportunity for all, and we strive to engage the whole community in realizing that vision.
What is Community Engagement?
Our community engagement work uses quantitative and qualitative data to identify issues to help fundholders and community partners focus their resources and make the biggest impact.
Convening & Facilitating
A core part of this work is serving as a convener and facilitator. We bring together key players from the private and public sectors – leaders from businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and others – to participate in important conversations about issues affecting quality of life in our communities and how to expand opportunity.
Providing Data & Information
We engage these community builders around the greatest needs and opportunities in our community, from the arts and education to housing and workforce development. We shine a light on important issues through objective data and information – supported by data at our community indicator website, DelawareFocus.org – and we tell stories of what’s working in Delaware.
Connecting Philanthropists & Community Needs
Most importantly, by offering data and insights into key community issues and facilitating beneficial partnerships, we empower philanthropists with the community knowledge and relationships to maximize their impact.
