Delaware nonprofits are invited to apply for the Delaware Community Foundation’s Specific Interest Grants, awarded from funds created at the DCF by donors for very specific purposes.

Starting on Monday, Dec. 9, grant applications will be accepted for programs to support:

• Delawareans in need of long-term health care.
• Small grants for arts in Wilmington.
• Fulfillment of terminally ill children’s wishes.
• Support animals and animal welfare.

An independent committee, formed of community leaders who are knowledgeable in these subject areas, selects grant recipients within the parameters established by the donors.

The deadline for Specific Interest Grants is Jan. 17, 2020. Applicants will be notified of decisions in March.
