DCFConnecting People Who Care

Welcome to the Delaware Community Foundation
2014 Annual Report

The Leslie Stanford Fund for the YWCA was listed under the wrong organization and the Anthony & Catherine Fusco Foundation was not included in the list of 2014 Business Partners. We apologize and thank both Ms. Stanford and the Fusco Foundation for their generosity.


At the Delaware Community Foundation, we connect people who care with the causes they care about, helping individuals and organizations create charitable funds that become permanent sources of funding for charitable causes.

This year, we took the first steps on a journey of growth and transformation.

2014 Annual Report!

Thank you Tom Wren
