The DCF is a resource, a connector and a facilitator, nimble and ready to respond to community needs as they evolve. In partnership with our fundholders, collaborators and other community stakeholders, we focus our community leadership work on Building Opportunity and Advancing Equity in Delaware.We focus on increasing the impact of resources invested in our community in three ways:

Building Opportunity

A core part of our leadership work is serving as a convener and facilitator. We bring together community builders from the private and public sectors – leaders from businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and others – to participate in important conversations about issues affecting quality of life in our communities and how to build opportunity for all people.

Advancing Equity

We believe communities are strongest when all people have the opportunity to thrive. Although we initially launched our equity work in 2018, the national spotlight on equity in 2020 reinforced the importance of the work we must commit to for the years to come.

We are taking action. We are committing to the long-term institutional work we know is necessary. We will empower the community to lead, and advance difficult conversations about systemic racism and how we collectively can drive real change. We will drive equity at every step of our grantmaking process.
