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?

The Delta Gateway Foundation seeks to enhance the educational and scholastic achievement for individuals particularly women of African descent in the Greater Cincinnati area. BDPA Cincinnati chapter president Clarence Larcarte learned about the Delta Gateway Foundation from one the chapter's past president. The feeling is that the chapter's youth education program is a good fit for the mission of the Foundation. As a result, the decision was made for BDPA Cincinnati chapter to partner with BDPA Education and Education Foundation (BETF) on a grant proposal seeking $1,500 in funding. We hope to have an answer within the next few weeks.

Wish us luck!
