Member Benefits
DGA Member Benefits:

Useful Networks
DGA helps members connect with leaders of private foundations, corporate foundations and giving programs, community and family foundations and other leading donors in the state to share information and practices and explore opportunities for collaboration and leveraging grants.  The association offers formal and informal gatherings and members-only website pages where you can communicate freely with peers.

Information on State Matters
We are focused things in Delaware, providing you with an access point for learning about our state’s unique opportunities and needs.  We host events in which members learn about challenges in various sectors of public life that are being addressed by the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors in Delaware.

Access to Leaders
We facilitate information exchanges with government officials and program experts so you can participate in two-way conversations about subjects important to your grant-making.

Helpful News
Our website is a clearing house of information about the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, capturing relevant news to keep members informed about what is happening locally and nationally that could affect your work.

Educational Conferences and Programs
We offer presentations and workshops on topics of interest to grantmakers, such as best practices in decision-making, strategic planning, program evaluation and changing federal and state regulations.  These are led by local and national experts, bringing a Delaware focus and perspectives from around the country.

Who’s Who
DGA members have access to a members-only database of information provided by fellow members about their interests and activities, key leaders and staff, making it easy to reach out to others who share your challenges.

What’s Coming
On our website, we collect information from nonprofit leaders about upcoming operating and capital funding campaigns so that you can anticipate proposals and applications that may come your way and discuss them with your fellow members.

We are committed to encouraging partnerships within the donor community and between donors, government and nonprofit organizations.  We use our contacts across the sector to make members aware of opportunities to work cooperatively with others.

Affinity Groups
Through our website and programs we will support the formation of groups of grantmakers who share a common interest in a particular category of need or nonprofit sector, such as Arts, Education, Adult Health, etc.

Helpful Website
We will start up our site simply but over time we expect to provide, in addition to the services mentioned above:
  • An online directory of grantmakers
  • A regular online newsletter
  • Links to information service from other grantmakers associations and the national association of regional grantmakers associations
