The Foundation for Delaware County announces a new partnership with Circle of Giving 2020.

As a fiscal sponsor, the foundation will provide administrative services and oversight, allowing it to receive tax-deductible donations.

Circle of Giving has provided more than $55,000 in grocery store gift cards, meals, school supplies and other resources to support Rose Tree Media school district families as well as Delaware County families living in under-resourced communities.

It was founded by Media residents Kelly Yiadom and Aimee Rubin who saw the impact COVID-19 was having on local families.

Leading an all-volunteer organization, Aimee and Kelly have launched a back to school drive and raised funds for supplies for teachers and computers for students.

“We are thrilled to welcome Circle of Giving 2020 to the foundation family,” said Frances Sheehan, president of The Foundation for Delaware County. “In just seven months Circle of Giving has raised more than $65,000. We are honored to provide them with fiscal support so that they can focus on pursuing their mission and providing resources for so many of our neighbors. If your organization is interested in using the foundation for fiscal sponsorship – we are here to help.”
