Delta Area Community Foundation

Twenty years ago, Delta Area Community Foundation had a dream of “becoming the most recognized philanthropic foundation in our area recognizing vision, leadership and inclusion of all people.” The dream continues with the local leadership! Delta Area Community Foundation is committed to educational enhancement, addressing poverty challenges and community development. We do this by engaging people, connecting resources and inspiring solutions to build a better community.

A BIG THANK YOU to our generous donors. Because of you we have 50 funds addressing needs in the Desha and Lincoln county area including history, arts, children in need, education, community development, poverty, scholarship and other charitable causes.
