Delaware Community Foundation Announces New Grants

Back to Archive

Beginning on April 12, Delaware nonprofits are invited to apply for the Delaware Community Foundation’s Specific Interest Grants.

A limited number of Specific Interest Grants are available. These grants are awarded from funds created at the DCF by donors for very specific purposes. An independent committee, formed of community leaders who are knowledgeable in these subject areas, selects grant recipients within the parameters established by the donors. Grant applications are being accepted for programs to support:

  • Small grants for arts in Wilmington.
  • Fulfillment of terminally ill children’s wishes.
  • Animals and animal welfare.

The deadline for Specific Interest Grants is May 7. Applicants will be notified of decisions in late June.
