Together, We Make Dreams Come True

The Greater Lewes Foundation promotes regional philanthropy and develops charitable leadership.

The Greater Lewes Foundation helps generous people achieve their philanthropic objectives by creating charitable funds to support important community causes.

This can be done quickly, with no set-up cost, under the GLF’s non-profit status.

Besides managing charitable funds, GLF board members are actively involved in our community, exploring ways for the Foundation to support significant major community projects, such as the Lewes Canalfront Park, Public Library and the Open Space Alliance Campaign.

Please join us in support of the greater Lewes region. Support or create a fund of your own, take part in important GLF initiatives and never stop believing in the power of community.

GLF Sponsors Race for Open Space on 4/20/24

The Greater Lewes Foundation is sponsoring the inaugural “Race for Open Space“ event on April 20, 2024 in Lewes. Starting and completing in the George HP Smith Park, both the 5K run and the 1-mile walk will pass by the Fourth Street preserve. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Open Space Alliance Campaign for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to permanently preserve this 29-acre parcel within the City of Lewes.

As part of the “Earth Day Weekend“ In Lewes, this fun event will promote environmental awareness, exercise, and community spirit all to benefit the salvation of the largest parcel of undeveloped land in Lewes.

Our mission is to maintain and improve the quality of life in the Greater Lewes, Delaware region.
