Empowering Small Nonprofits
to Scale Their Impact

Are you a nonprofit organization serving historically excluded communities in Delaware? Do you wish to scale your impact, strengthen your leadership, and enhance your organizational capacity? Look no further! The DANA Nonprofit Accelerator Program is here to support and guide you on your transformative journey. 

 About the DANA Nonprofit Accelerator Program: A three-year initiative designed to empower existing small nonprofits to thrive and create lasting change. We understand that many nonprofits face the “Nonprofit Catch 22,” where limited resources hinder their ability to sustain operations and secure funding to grow and meet the rising needs of those they serve. 

This Program aims to break this cycle by providing continuous technical assistance, coaching, connecting, and consulting to participating nonprofits. By strengthening leadership skills, enhancing organizational capacity, and fostering shared learning through a cohort model, we create opportunities for collaboration, partnership, and increased community impact.
