The Nonprofit Sector
There are over 3000 tax exempt organizations operating in Delaware – from faith organizations, fire companies and foundations, to food pantries, hospitals, and universities.
Approximately 1200 of these provide services to millions of residents and visitors to Delaware. Collectively these organizations generate over $8 billion in spending power. But they do not work alone. Working collaboratively, and with government, philanthropy, and business, the social impact sector seeks to enhance the lives of those who live and visit our state.
DANA supports these collaboratives, conducting research, convening thought leaders, and educating policy makers. See how DANA’s impact advances the nonprofit sector across all of Delaware!
