Grants typically ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 to Delaware nonprofit organizations for projects that have a positive, long-term impact on the local population or region. Funding is intended to support the purchase of land, construction, major renovation and repair of buildings, so statewide organizations can operate as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The Foundation supports organizations and programs throughout the State of Delaware that address a wide range of community needs, including, but not limited to, health and human services, the arts, humanities and culture, the environment, animal welfare, housing, and community development.

Capital grants typically range from $5,000 to $20,000, with a maximum award of $25,000.
Multi-year capital campaigns can be funded only once by the DCF.
Only 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations within the State of Delaware and those outside the state that benefit Delawareans are eligible to apply.
Capital grant recipients must wait for the completion of two capital grant-making cycles before applying for another capital grant. For example, if an organization received a capital grant in 2016, it will be eligible to re-apply for another capital grant in 2019. However, multi-year capital campaigns can be funded only once by the DCF.
