ABOUT THE DELEK FUND FOR HOPE

 

The Delek Fund for Hope was established to support charities in the communities where our employees and customers live and work. These communities include those served by each of our business interests. Employees can take part in these philanthropic efforts by supporting the Employee Giving Program through payroll deduction and/or the Matching Gifts Program.  Donations made through these programs stay local and are directed to public 501(c)3 charitable organizations in our employee’s own communities. Local Delek Fund for Hope committees review grants requests for these funds before passing along for final approval and processing.

Another resource available to employees is the Delek Employee Care FundWhen one of our own is facing a tough financial situation, this Fund may be able to ease the burden. Please click here for more information.
