New season for Neighbourhood Small Grants
Now more than ever, in BC, we need to stay connected with our neighbours and community members.
We want to support small-scale individual-led community projects that comply with the new social/physical distancing guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Responsive Neighbourhood Small offer grants of up to $500 to individuals or family members from the same household or for those who are interested to collaborate with neighborhoods across British Columbia to build community strength and resilience, foster community creativity and wellbeing, and tackle social isolation.
Former Delta Foundation Chair receives Rotary award
Former Chair of the Delta Foundation Noel Philippot received the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award from the Rotary Club of Ladner, which founded the Foundation in 1986, for his service above self to the Delta community as board director and chair of the Delta Foundation over several years. Paul Harris Fellow honourees are individuals who meet high professional and personal standards set forth by Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary International, the world’s original service club, and for extraordinary service above self.
Delta communities meet their neighbours -- new season of Neighbourhood Small Grants now open
Neighbourhood Small Grants is a unique program that helps build community and strengthen connections right where people live - in their neighbourhoods. The program supports ordinary residents who have small but powerful ideas to bring people together and make their community vibrant. Through the support of a small grant (from $50-$500), residents are able to tap into their creativity and leadership skills to develop projects that benefit the community. Delta Foundation is offering this program once again to the Delta community, with funding support from the Vancouver Foundation.
Small grants can boost Delta neighbourhoods

Delta residents who want to connect and engage with others in their neighbourhoods, just to get to know them, or to make their community a better place to live, can do something about it with a Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Delta Foundation.

Based on a simple but powerful idea – that everyone is a valuable member of the community and that we all have something to share — Neighbourhood Small Grants of $50 to $500 can enable local residents to strengthen their community by bringing people together, sharing their skills and knowledge, celebrating diversity, and increasing their sense of belonging.

If you want to give back to our community now or leave a legacy gift for the future, we can help. Whether you're setting up a donor advised fund, field of interest fund, or donating to an existing fund we can help you create the kind of impact you want.

Al Hollinger's estate keeps giving back to Delta community
Delta Fire Department is annually receiving the interest on one third of $300,000, the Delta Police Department a similar share and Delta School District every four years the interest on the third portion of that fund. These funds are a gift from the estate of the late Albert Hollinger, a Delta resident of many years who died at the age of 82 in 2015. More on Al Hollinger.
For the Police and Fire departments the funds will be used for training. For the Delta School District, a scholarship will be established to support a graduating Delta high school students pursuing post secondary education.
Albert Hollinger was a former police officer and an explosives and bomb disposal expert and he served for many years in the BC Corrections service, including B.C. Penitentiary.  He was an avid collector of military memorabilia, 50 motorcycles and unique bicycles. 
The Hollinger estate executor, Major (ret.) Reverend Jim Short, said,“I think the Delta Foundation, as did Al, is an excellent way for people to give back to the community, to make it stronger, in providing a trusted system to ensure your wishes are administered as a legacy at one time or on an ongoing basis.”
