Empowering Individuals and Communities

 

Since 1937, the Longwood Foundation has invested in the quality of life and future of Delaware and southern Chester County. The Foundation intends to benefit the residents, environment, and culture of the state of Delaware and within a four mile radius of Longwood Gardens. We seek to invest in nonprofit organizations that empower individuals and communities. These grants aim to address challenges within our geographic boundaries by accelerating success in the nonprofit sector. We provide support across a variety of sectors, including (but not limited to) the arts, civic, education, environment, health and hospitals, housing, and social service areas.
