Welcome to DELDF
Dear Members and Friends:
THE DELTA EDUCATION AND LIFE DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, INCORPORATED (DELDF) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 public service and community organization.
Its purpose is to secure and distribute funds that promote and support public service programs initiated by the Broward County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of our diverse community through education, cultural enrichment and social well being.
As Chairperson of DELDF, on behalf of its Board of Directors and Members, I would like to thank you, our supporters, for making this past year a remarkable success. Our collaborative efforts have generated over $255,000.00 this past year.
Because of this tremendous achievement, we were very proud to award $72,000.00 in scholarships to deserving high school students in Broward County. Our monetary success also afforded us the opportunity to support educational programs that promoted literacy and distributed free books to hundreds of children preschool through fifth grade. High school students were showcased for their scholastic achievement at a community program and a college and career fair was held for freshman, sophomores, and juniors. Finally, High school students were also taken on a college tour to include colleges in three states, to expose them to college campuses. Through other program initiatives, cultural enrichment and mentoring activities were provided for young men and women that were designed to enhance and promote self-efficacy and STEM skills. Our goal is to increase our donor base and expand our outreach while strengthening our fundraising efforts to continue to make a positive impact in the community.
Thank you wholeheartedly for your continued support and we look forward to another amazingly successful year.
Deetra S. Durham
