Grants of up to $2,500 and in-kind support to Delaware nonprofit arts organizations to support operations and build capacity. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. The grants are intended to offer financial support, training, and consultation to develop and strengthen the management capacity of emerging arts organizations so they can operate in a sustainable manner.
StartUp Program funding consists of operating support and a program of training classes and consulting with Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement (DANA).

DANA will continue to work with members of the organization’s board/staff for a period of time to guide them in their growth.
Topics covered may include: Vision, Mission, Strategy, and Evaluation; Leadership: Board, Staff and Volunteers; Legal Compliance and Ethics; Finance and Operations; Resource Development and Fundraising; Public Awareness, Engagement, and Advocacy.
