Through the Delaware COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund, a partnership of the Delaware Community Foundation and Philanthropy Delaware, Delawareans donated more than $5 million to address community needs related to the pandemic. We committed to you and all donors that we would disburse that money strategically throughout the duration of the pandemic, to address needs as they evolved.
Of that money, to date, over $3.6 million has been awarded through the Community Needs Grants Program to more than 150 nonprofit organizations statewide. Click the impact reports below to learn more.
Among the success stories of the past year at Sojourners’ Place, Inc. were several residents who saw their nursing licenses reinstated and found employment as healthcare professionals, as well as residents who secured employment at Amazon and the Delaware Recycling Center.
