Mary Anne Shadd/Senator Rose Henry Program

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc - Delaware Chapter is pleased to be a recipient of the 2018 Fund for Women grant.  The Fund for Women grant is an endowment held at the Delaware Community Foundation. The interest from this endowment is given in grants to women’s and girls’ programs in Delaware each year. 

NC100BW-DE was awarded this grant to launch the Mary Ann Shadd Cary/Margaret Rose Henry Civic Engagement Initiative targeting black women statewide for leadership development.  The effort to embark on such an initiative was the vision of  Melanie S. Daniels -  Immediate Past President, Mary Anne Miller -  NCBW & James Baker - Former Mayor Wilmington, DE.  The project is designed to measurably increase the civic engagement of participants through awareness of and improved access to training and leadership development. While there is an emphasis on the engagement of black women, all interested women ages 18 and older will be encouraged to enroll. More information coming soon!

If you are interested, please submit an application above.
