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.

Delaware Tech students named Maureen Schab Scholars

November 10, 2023

Four Delaware Technical Community College students pursuing a bachelor of science in elementary education degree were recently recognized as the inaugural Maureen Schab Scholars recipients.

This scholarship fund was created to honor the memory of Maureen Schab, a lifelong teacher who instructed students at Milton Junior High School and Lewes Middle School, as well as in the Academic Challenge program at Delaware Tech's Owens Campus in Georgetown. The fund supports BSE students while they are in their residency (second) year of the program.

This year's recipients are pictured with Bill Schab, Maureen’s husband, who established the fund. Shown are (l-r) Haley Malice, Ashlee Jones, Schab, Julie Dominick and Nikki Chisnell.

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