Featured Partnerships

A selection of organizations and initiatives supported by, invested in or partnered with the Delta Fund. While we work with many more partners than these we felt that a cross section of our work would be useful to share. 

These organizations include non-profits, investment funds, companies and credit unions who are making a meaningful positive impact in improving equity.
