We are proud to be giving back to our community.
1. A Scholarship Fund has been set up and we have been giving them out since 2014 to a business/entrepreneurial students at Wilmington University who has the potential to start a small business in Delaware. the scholarships awarded are for the amount of $2500 each from the DSBC with Wilmington University matching the scholarship with one free undergraduate course. Our goal will be to give one Scholarship a year to a student at Wilmington University and another to a student at another College or University in Delaware. We also give out $500 Scholarships to High School students to attend a local college or university. By the end of 2016, we will have given out at least 11 of these scholarships. Our ultimate goal is to give out a total of $25,000 in total scholarships per year.
2. A Grant Fund to help a small business member in distress or looking to grow with a purchase of a new piece of equipment.
