Welcome to the new Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation (CHEF) website!

Please take a few minutes to look around and allow us to introduce ourselves.

As an independent non-profit organization that partners with the Cape Henlopen School District, we raise funds to support educational initiatives and special projects within the district which provide our students – more than 5,400 of them in nine different schools – with the tools they need to excel.

In order to do this, we rely on our entire community – not just educators and parents, but individuals, businesses, civic and legislative leaders – to help us implement innovative ideas and bridge the gap left by decreases in state and federal funding. 

Please read more about us, who we are and what we do. We welcome your participation in supporting our kids, our community, and our future. Please, like us on Facebook

“Thanks to the funding provided by CHEF, all our 5th grade students in the CHSD were able to participate in their first Science Fair.  This learning opportunity allowed over 375 students the possibility of exploring and questioning the world around them.”
