Community Involvement

We're Proud To Support: Delco Gives

Delco Gives Day is a 24-hour county-wide day of giving/community celebration, hosted by The Foundation for Delaware County, where people will make a donation to their favorite nonprofits (or peruse new ones) on the site. Each donation is eligible for bonus money provided by the Foundation, and cash prizes sponsored by local businesses are given out throughout the day. The inaugural Delco Gives Day will be held May 8 - 9, 2024 (7:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.) Online activity will be accompanied by a number of celebrations held throughout the county that bring together nonprofits, donors, businesses, and volunteers to showcase the power of collective action and community giving. Delco Gives Day is more than just a fundraising event; it's a celebration of the Delco generosity and community spirit.


Delco Gives Day is not without precedent. Giving Days have proven to be highly successful in communities across the country, inspiring philanthropy, fostering collaboration, and raising awareness of local nonprofits and their work. These events have generated millions of dollars in donations, enabling nonprofits to expand their services and address pressing community needs. In neighboring counties, Giving Days raise millions of dollars each year for their communities (Extra Give in Lancaster raised $10.2 M in 2022, Give Local York raised $4.6 M).
