Do More 24 Delaware Campaign

Do More 24 Delaware – Announcement!

Community Member,

As proud Delawareans we are thrilled to share that we’ll be participating in a monumental statewide campaign this March 4th-5th.

With fewer foundations, smaller grants and formerly localized investments now leaving the state, the impact individuals like you is more important than ever in ensuring the ongoing support services needed for our children.

Can you imagine what life would be like for our children if the work we do stopped tomorrow? The community you care about relies on your support to provide prevention programming, meals, educational field trips, homework assistance, and recreation.

And it’s not just our work that makes Delaware a great place to call home. Even in our small state, there are more than 5,000 nonprofits working each day to provide education, culture, health care, shelter, a quality environment and more.

But the future of the work we do is not all assured.

We must do more! We must work together to ensure the continuation of the critical services that make Delaware safe, special, and sustainable for future generations.

For 24 hours from 6 p.m. March 4th through 6 p.m. March 5th we’re asking you to do more with us. Please give to Do More 24 Delaware. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing more about getting involved and what your help creates for the state.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Kind Regards,
Joel Harris
Development Director
