Delta Institute works with communities throughout the Midwest to solve complex environmental challenges.
We envision a region in which all communities and landscapes thrive through an integrated approach to environmental, economic, and social challenges.
As a 501c3 nonprofit with a 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, Delta serves as a trusted advisor, technical provider, and project implementation expert for partners across the public, private, nonprofit, and community sectors. We rely on both philanthropic and earned revenue, specifically through grants, charitable contributions, and fee-for-service contracts.
Our work takes us to cities like Chicago, St. Louis, Gary, and Milwaukee; to communities such as Hobart and Michigan City, Indiana; to Great Lakes coastal towns like Sebewaing and Muskegon, Michigan; and to rural counties with thousands of acres of farmland and waterways.
Delta Institute exists because environmental and economic issues hit communities—both urban and rural—through disinvestment, inequity, and policy decisions. We collaborate to solve legacy environmental and economic issues at the community level by focusing on the self-defined goals our partners share with us. It’s quite likely that you—or someone you know—live, work, or pass through a community that Delta has helped since our founding in 1998.
Taking action now is not only a pressing climate change issue, but also an issue of equity and environmental justice. Join us today.
