In the fall of 2018, the DCF launched Building Opportunity in Delaware, a multi-year initiative to increase the impact of philanthropy on the most critical issues in our state, reduce the opportunity gap and help families rise out of poverty.

Through strategic grants and programs, statewide Focus Conversations, Book Circles, and an annual keynote event, we are fostering discussion and collaboration that are engaging our communities and empowering giving.
