Change Your Community: Easy Opportunities For You To Get Inspired To Give Back

Looking to change your community or state? The Delaware Community Foundation wants to get people involved by talking about opportunity. Focusing on a multifaceted approach, DCF is sparking conversations and inspiring others to improve opportunities for lower-income residents.

 

In 2018, DCF is launching Building Opportunity in Delaware, an initiative to increase the impact of philanthropy on the most critical issues in our state. The goal of this work is to foster discussion and collaboration that will empower the local community to reduce the opportunity gap.

 

Help shine a light on the biggest issues facing people in Wilmington and all of Delaware!
