Let’s Work Together
Nonprofits in Delaware are strengthened when we work together to support local communities. Our efforts are multiplied through the support of government, business, foundations, donors and volunteers. These stakeholders care about the efficiency and effectiveness of nonprofits they support. As a member of the alliance, your staff, board and volunteers can learn from other nonprofit leaders, and gain access to resources and tools that can help your mission advance.
