About Us

The Foundation for Delaware County fuels nonprofit success through collective philanthropy, uniting individuals, families, and businesses for a greater impact. We provide leadership and help mobilize resources to support our nonprofit community so they can address our communities’ biggest challenges.

Delco Gives is our largest collective philanthropic effort to date. Delco Gives is a community-wide celebration designed to shine a light on the critical work of the county’s nonprofits. We are honored to host Delco Gives and help facilitate the generosity of local donors as they come together on one day to give to their favorite organizations or to new causes that align with their passions and values. Together, we can help these organizations raise the support necessary to sustain and expand their programs and services and make a meaningful impact in the lives of those they serve.

Join the movement! Your support of Delco Gives matters, whether you're donating $10 or more. Every dollar counts in making a lasting impact in Delaware County, and enabling these critical organizations to continue to serve our community and our neighbors.
