About the African American Empowerment Fund
The African American Empowerment Fund of Delaware (AAEFD) is a giving circle of the Delaware Community Foundation. The fund was formed to establish a legacy of leadership in promoting philanthropy to fund causes important to the education, social, and economic empowerment of African American Delawareans. A giving circle is a group of people who give and raise money for a charitable fund and make grants from that fund to support a shared interest. It is the belief of AAEFD that the power of collective giving can immeasurably improve the worth and potential of African Americans in Delaware.
