The Delaware KIDS Fund was established by Thomas J. Hanna in November 2008 and is an acronym for ‘Kids in Distressed Situations’. It is geared around assisting Delaware area kids that are at risk or in need for whatever reason. Delaware KIDS Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing goods and services such as; clothing, food, shelter, scholarships, educational grants, counseling and mentoring.
Over the last six years, the fund has disbursed $47,146 to worthy organizations and crisis needs in Delaware.

Founding partner Harvey, Hanna & Associates has donated over $1 Million dollars to Delaware causes in 1997.
“There is a personal connection with any effort such as this. I’m a father of three kids myself and having been in out of various children’s hospitals, seeing those kids that are less fortunate than others; it hits home. A few years ago, we as a family decided to consolidate our giving and formalize it in the form of this Delaware KIDS Fund,” shares Thomas J. Hanna, VP of Harvey Hanna & Associates.
The Fund was established as a response to Delaware’s ‘food security crisis’, based on the premise that ‘no child of any age can flourish and grow without adequate nutrition’ and has grown to encompass much more since its’ conception. The Delaware KIDS Fund not only supplies nutrition for Delaware youth’s physical growth, it also helps to feed their minds through the mentoring program, counseling, scholarships and educational grants.
