When spirit of giving hits, remember your local nonprofits

By Rob Martinelli

If you are looking to make a last-minute tax-deductible gift to a nonprofit, or thinking about getting involved in the new year, please check out the Delaware Business Times Giving Guide, pictured to the right. The publication showcases 42 Delaware nonprofits and their leadership teams.

They serve the region through their work in everything from hunger relief and rehabilitation to education and land conservancy. The Giving Guide offers a one-stop resource for businesses and their employees to learn more about local nonprofits and how to get involved.

Each nonprofit profile includes mission statements, community impact, leadership information and giving and volunteer opportunities. They also provide important background information, such as funding sources, annual revenue and service area. You’ll also find articles by nonprofit leaders like Stuart Comstock-Gay, president of the Delaware Community Foundation, who talks about expanding access to a high-quality education.

Sheila Bravo, president and CEO of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement, discusses the importance of “time, talent and treasure” in keeping community impact groups vibrant and sustainable.

Michelle Taylor, president and CEO of United Way of Delaware, highlights the importance of working collaboratively to solve problems such as literacy.

Please consider giving to one of these fine nonprofits before year end. We applaud your spirit of generosity that includes your time and gifts in making a difference in the lives of so many. You can access the 2018 digital edition of the Giving Guide at

As we extend to you our wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season, we hope you will find this resource to be of great benefit.
