We all enjoy a better quality of life when all people have opportunities to succeed.
Therefore, the DCF is leading a multiyear initiative to explore the opportunity gap, convene conversations that lead to solutions, and leverage resources for the greatest impact on creating opportunity for all Delawareans.
In 2018, we are launching Building Opportunity in Delaware to increase the impact of philanthropy on the most critical issues in our state. Through this work, we strive to foster discussion and collaboration that will empower our community to reduce the opportunity gap. See the sidebar for information about how to get involved.
What is the opportunity gap?
The opportunity gap refers to the ways in which institutional barriers in our society – educational, economic, and racial – contribute to growing disparities among classes in America and perpetuate lower educational aspirations and economic success for some citizens.
What issues will be in focus?
Over the coming years, the DCF will shine a light on the areas of greatest need and opportunity in Delaware that hold the most promise to provide a better quality of life for Delawareans.
