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


The Greater Lewes Foundation helps generous individual and groups achieve their charitable objectives, often by establishing temporary or permanent funds to benefit important causes in our community.

This can be done quickly, with no set-up cost, under the GLF’s 501(c)(3).

Besides managing charitable funds, GLF board members are actively involved in our community, exploring ways for the Foundation to help with important longer-term issues and projects, such as the Lewes Canalfront Park and the new Lewes Public Library.

Please join us in support of the greater Lewes region, start a fund, take part in important community initiatives and never stop believing in the power of community.
