If you can’t attend you have 2 options to still support:

1: Select TICKETS and purchase a ticket that will be donated to a Delaware Futures student to attend!

Email-ballardcommunityfund@gmail.com to let us know the ticket is a donation but since it’s purchased under your name you still receive the tax benefit so thank you again!

2. Select DONATION and make whatever monetary donation you desire! Thank you!

The Fund was created following the line of duty death of my late husband, Corporal Stephen Ballard in 2017, to provide a grant each year to a Delaware community organization to support local initiatives.

The 2020 grant recipient is Delaware Futures. Many teens in Delaware want to go to college but don’t know how to get there. Delaware Futures helps economically disadvantage youth starting the summer after their 8th grade year develop social, academic and problem solving skills needed to go to college. Students who completes the program can qualify for scholarships to one of the 12 partner colleges. Since 1998, 88% of students have gone to college and 12% into Armed Forces.

Your support is appreciated and will allow us to continue providing grants in perpetuity. Stephen was a state trooper for 8 years when he was fatally shot on April 26, 2017. He was a kind and warm hearted person who was always giving back and helping the community. This Fund and the organizations we support are a testament to keeping his legacy alive by helping others in need.

Past grant recipients are Delaware Adolescents Program, Inc. (2018) and NAMI-Delaware: Veterans Response Team (2019)
