The overarching  objective of the Delta Presents Outreach Foundation (DPOF), is that members will connect with our communities and neighborhoods, use our time, invest resources, and work together to form meaningful partnerships and outreach services and programs that enrich our neighborhoods and communities.


How Does It Happen?

The Dream

Delta trailblazers realized the dream through the creation of a forum to publicly showcase the talent, achievement, and potential of African American male graduating seniors. Thus, the inception of “Delta Presents.” The dream was embraced by the establishment of the Foundation that took the program’s name. The legacy of the dream will be fulfilled through its mission:


  • To promote self-development

  • To facilitate the scholarship search and scholarship application process

  • To assist individuals to become more civic- minded and increase community involvement

  • To operate exclusively for educational, cultural, and public service pursuits
