Ten Local Non-Profits Awarded GDCCF Grants

The Greater Delaware County Community Foundation (GDCCF) recently awarded over $35,000 in grants to county organizations.

GDCCF chairman, Jack Klaus, spoke about the mission of the foundation. “The funds we use were donated by Mr. McGee to help the poor of Delaware County. To avoid conflicts and duplication, we have chosen to do this by partnering with existing non-profit organizations who already have the people, the training, the skills and the resources needed to make the most of these funds. The GDCCF would like to thank the organizations who are actually doing the work of helping those who need help the most.”
