Wilmington Alliance was founded in 2019 by the merger of two long-standing Wilmington nonprofit organizations. Our Vision is that Wilmington will be a thriving community that offers opportunities and access to all. Our Mission is to bring people together to drive innovative solutions, leverage resources and promote opportunities to empower the city’s residents and businesses.

Our work is fueled by our Values of Equity, Results-Oriented, Inclusion and Collaboration:


Equity Our work is guided by the belief that social and economic well-being occurs when traditionally underserved individuals and communities both drive and share in the benefits of economic growth.

Results-Oriented Our programs and initiatives produce demonstrable outcomes that directly and indirectly improve the quality of life for Wilmington’s residents and businesses.

Inclusion We recognize, value, and embrace the diversity that is found in our community. This includes diversity of thought and experience as well as diversity along race, age, cultural representations, gender identity, sexual orientation, and physical ability.


Collaboration We seek to build bridges and create inclusive solutions in our shared commitment to the City of Wilmington and its residents. We do this by listening, engaging, and partnering with the community. We are stronger together as we share expertise, resources, and networks.


We are passionate about our work, our partners, and our citywide mission.


About Wilmington, DE

Wilmington – the largest city in Delaware – has long been a regional corporate and business center, but recently it’s taken its place as a burgeoning East-Coast center for technology and innovation. The city is frequently cited as a new tech hub and one of America’s most attractive small cities for living and amenities, with attractive downtown living and dining. And it’s the home of our 46th President!


About Our Work

The Alliance contributes to the City’s increased vibrancy by convening partners, programs, and funders to drive place-based strategies and urban reclamation. The Alliance has brought new community parks and programs to the forefront, created first in the city shared commercial kitchen space, and will be opening new community space in 2022. We also have major and far-reaching programs in workforce development and small business support and entrepreneurship, moving swiftly to accelerate initiatives that address pandemic closures and calls for equity and justice, through economic mobility. In our work, we seek to build bridges through collaboration with the city and its residents, while offering results-oriented programs and initiatives to produce outcomes that improve the quality of life for Wilmington’s residents and businesses.
