Delaware County Education Foundation

The Delaware County Education Foundation raises funds to enhance the educational experience of the more than 15,000 students served by the organization. The Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, provides funding for classroom teachers and administrators to enrich student learning through creative approaches along with innovative equipment and materials. Although the Foundation supports DCIU students through classroom and program grants, the Foundation is its own entity, totally separate from DCIU.

Delaware County Education Foundation Educational Grant Procedures
