Delta Foundation is a non profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt community development corporation. Through representation of 14 civil rights and community organizations working in Mississippi, Delta Foundation was chartered.

Its basic purpose was to create businesses and jobs for its primary constituents, minority and economically disadvantaged residents of its target areas.  The principle vehicle for the attack on poverty is the creation of for profit enterprises that increase control and ownership of resources by the poor.
