Welcome Home

We believe Delaware County is a great place to live. We also believe that we can make it even better. So we work every day to improve our community. Sometimes that means sponsoring educational programs, other times it means granting funds for important community projects. On this site, you can learn about the full spectrum of work we do − and how to become a part of it.

Are you a DIFFERENCE MAKER? graphic - resized med.jpg

You can be when you designate your gift to an unrestricted endowment fund at the Foundation.  The Unrestricted Fund is the Difference Maker fund for nonprofit organizations in Delaware County!  Last year, 41% of all Foundation grants and scholarships came from the Difference Maker fund of unrestricted gifts. 

In 2013 the Difference Maker Initiative exceeded the goal of $250,000.  This year we will offer another match of $125,000 for gifts to unrestricted endowment funds through the end of 2014.  Click here to view some of the projects made possible because of unrestricted gifts and learn how your gift can qualify for the match.
