The Fund for Women is an endowment held at the Delaware Community Foundation. The interest from this endowment is given in grants to women's and girls' programs in Delaware each year.

Through the power of collective giving, our grants improve the worth and potential of women and girls in Delaware by funding critical projects that meet their needs from housing to health care, from career training to emergency food programs.

This year alone, programs funded by FFW touched the lives of 1,295 women and girls in Delaware. Our support extends to the families of each woman and girl we serve, growing our impact exponentially to over 5,100 community members throughout the state. 

While we are proud of the many ways in which we have supported women and girls in Delaware for more than 25 years, the need remains strong. We can only fund about 15% of the grant requests each year. With your help we can do more!
