The Excellence in Education Fund was created in 2019 to foster workforce development initiatives in Kent County. The Fund was made possible by generous contributions from the Statewide Workforce Development, Kent Economic Partnership, Greater Kent Committee, Delaware State News, and the Kent County community.
The CenDel Foundation is committed to helping generous people transform the community through charitable giving. Since 2008, the Foundation has distributed more than $3 million in grants and funding to a variety of organizations in Central Delaware, improving the lives of those living in Kent County.
