Equity Partners Grants

The Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) has awarded $62,500 in multiyear program development grants to three nonprofit organizations as part of its Equity Partners Program that launched in 2021.  

These multiyear grants, supported by an initial $150,000 gift from Wilmington-based Barclays US Consumer Bank in 2021 and a $25,000 gift from Dupont, are intended to help support resilient, sustainable Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)-led organizations, fuel community-driven change, and ensure current and next-generation leaders’ long-term success. The grant partners will be considered for a final grant in 2023 as part of this program.
