More About CenDel’s Efforts:

Protecting Vulnerable Citizens: Funding recipients through the Potter Trust have included the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, which used the funding to save lives through early detection efforts. Funds have also been distributed to Catholic Charities, Communities in Schools, the Milford Housing Development Corporation, Cancer Support Community of Delaware and many other organizations which provide crisis funding, access to healthcare and meals for those in need.

Supporting Education: To encourage the love of reading, CenDel partnered with Read Aloud Delaware to promote literacy by distributing 500 books to the children who attended the Restoring Central Delaware Community Fair. In 2017, CenDel also announced the creation of the new Dr. C. Edward Graybeal Scholarship Fund, with an initial donation of $100,000, to fund scholarships to exceptional students at Milford High School. The first student was awarded the scholarship in May.

Supporting Nonprofits: The CenDel Community Building offers reduced-cost rent and utilities to nonprofits. The building is located at the corner of Loockerman and Bradford Streets in downtown Dover. The Foundation has also offered a variety of programs to Kent County nonprofits to support their various missions. We strive to be a vital part of the community.

Supporting the Arts: In August, CenDel was proud to announce $24,000 in grants to more than one dozen arts-focused organizations, including the Delaware Choral Society, Delaware Friends of Folk, Delaware Shakespeare Festival, Delaware Symphony Orchestra, Dover Symphony Orchestra, Inner City Cultural League, Kent Chamber Choir, the Children’s Theatre and many others.

If you have provided funding to the CenDel Foundation in the past, we thank you! If you’d like to learn more about how to support our important work, please call 302-724-7538 or email tenish@cendelfoundation.org.
