2020 DCF Focus Grant Applications Open to Delaware Nonprofits

Back to Archive
Delaware nonprofits are invited to apply for the Delaware Community Foundation’s (DCF’s) 2020 Focus Grants.

DCF Focus Grants will support organizations and initiatives working to build opportunity so all Delaware residents can overcome barriers to success, benefit equitably and thrive. Grants will be awarded in two focus areas: Increasing Youth Success (Statewide) and Supporting Delaware’s Growing Latino Communities (Sussex County).

Most Focus Grants will range from $10,000 to $20,000, with a maximum award of $25,000. Focus Grants are underwritten by the Delaware Forever Fund, the discretionary fund of the DCF.

The deadline for Focus Grants is February 14. Applicants will be notified of decisions in late June.

To help interested nonprofits prepare applications, the DCF will present three optional workshops:

• Wilmington: January 22, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Wilmington Public Library
• Dover: January 23, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Dover Public Library
• Georgetown: January 24, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Georgetown Public Library

Participants must register for workshops 24 hours in advance. Participation in workshops is optional and will not influence funding decisions.
