Build Knowledge & Relationships

The DCF provides a range of resources and activities where nonprofit leaders and team members can explore important community issues and connect with others who are passionate about improving quality of life in Delaware.

At DCF community conversations held throughout the state, nonprofit leaders and board members, corporate and community leaders, and committed community members come together to learn about one another’s work and identify opportunities to collaborate to maximize their impact.

Join us for events that connect and advance Delaware nonprofits.

Building Connections

“These events are important. The DCF, investors and folks within the community are hearing about the innovation and work that’s happening on the ground, finding ways to get plugged in and being able to support those efforts. No one entity can do it alone.”

Growing Knowledge

“The DCF epitomizes the best that community foundations have to offer by being a culturally sensitive partner to organizations like La Esperanza, and supporting the efforts of La Colectiva de Delaware Network to widen our collective impact. Working with DCF is a supportive two-way street that contributes to our capacity-building and goals, while amplifying important issues for the communities we serve.”

– Jennifer Fuqua, PhD
Executive Director, La Esperanza, and Chair, La Colectiva de Delaware Steering Committee

Sharing Experiences

“In my work at the YWCA on racial equity issues, I spend a good deal of time educating myself about the problems, causes and outcomes for communities of color living in a white-dominant society. The open exchanges of experiences and strategies at the DCF’s community conversations have been a valuable opportunity to listen, learn, and improve my organization’s impact.”
