The Delaware Community Foundation awards an average of $13 million in grants and scholarships annually.
Donor Advised Grants
Approximately $15 million is directed by DCF fundholders to causes they are passionate about. A few DCF fundholders solicit grant applications, which are posted on our grants page when available.
Most DCF fundholders do not solicit or accept grant applications, and the DCF is not able to directly connect grant seekers to our fundholders. However, you can review the full list of our fundholders in our annual report or our searchable online database.
