In honor of our fifth anniversary, The Foundation for Delaware County invites Delaware County nonprofit organizations to establish a permanently endowed fund at the foundation. As an incentive, from now until June 2022, we will offer a 1:5 match for all new endowments with a minimum of $25k – up to $100k.
Why are we doing this?
It’s our MISSION! The Foundation for Delaware County exists to create a permanent source of community capital benefiting the residents of Delaware County in perpetuity.
A healthy and vibrant charitable sector is critical to keeping our community strong. Beyond grant-making, we support local organizations with training, networking opportunities, and specialized endowment fund management. As part of that focus, the foundation wants to encourage nonprofit organizations in Delaware County to establish and build endowment funds that support their long-term sustainability.
Our goal is to invite nonprofits to learn more about endowments, determine whether they are ready to establish one and if so, to consider partnering with us and receive the benefits of working with their community foundation. As always, we will manage the administration of the fund, the agency will benefit from our prudent investment strategies, and we will be available to consult with members of the organization to help them succeed in establishing and growing their endowment.
