Delta Gateway Foundation

The Delta Gateway Foundation is a philanthropic organization that exists to support educational and social initiatives that empower individuals, particularly women of African descent.

In January 1996, the Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority began to manage the proceeds from the sale of real estate that the chapter had owned. In 2003, that effort evolved into a new group that began the research and laid the groundwork to establish the Delta Gateway Foundation. This charitable foundation funds grants (usually in the $500 - $2,500 range) for girls and women that promote:
  1. Educational and scholastic achievement
  2. Social well being and quality of life
  3. Youth development and social change
You can learn more about DGF from its brochure.

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) from a member of the BDPA Cincinnati chapter. I suspect that there may be local fraternity and sorority chapters all over the nation with similiar nonprofit foundations. Have you checked these possible funding sources out in your community?
