We’ve raised more than $118 million for our clients. How can we help you?

A results-oriented Delaware consultancy that helps foundations and nonprofit organizations transform communities and improve lives.

When a group of local parents was considering the expansion of Sussex Academy of Arts & Sciences into a grade 6-12 charter school, they turned to us to determine the project’s feasibility, resulting in a successful $13.7 million campaign which we led. Two years later, we completed a Phase 2 campaign to generate an additional $20 million for Sussex Academy.

Horizon is assisting a new effort to recognize the role of the Junction Railroad in the history of Lewes,  DE. Headed by Dr. Gary Wray, the outdoor exhibit will feature four historic rail cars – a steam engine, tender, Pullman car and caboose – renovated and placed on 300 feet of track between the Lewes Public Library and Lewes History Museum.

The reason?

Springboard Shelters for Homeless Assembled in Georgetown, DE

Sussex County will soon join more than 80 other communities nationwide with an innovative approach to address homelessness.

Supported largely by private donations and volunteer help, the Georgetown Pallet Shelter Village is now being erected on an acre of land owned by First State Community Action Agency.

Malone noted the early support of Dogfish Head Brewery and, most recently, Nickle Electric and George & Lynch in assembling the shelters.  Horizon Philanthropic Services assembled private funders, including Longwood and Laffey-McHugh Foundations, WSFS Bank and Highmark of Delaware, plus the support of Georgetown Town Council, which funded the purchase of the 40 shelters.
