Lang Cares Foundation 

In January 2022, Lang Development Group created its own philanthropic arm, the Lang Cares Foundation. The foundation aims to help organizations, individuals, and families in the local community through scholarship programs, community drives, charity events, among other activities.

Lang Cares Foundation provides assistance to local organizations in an effort to positively contribute to the community where our company conducts most of its business.

Lang Development Group has been a mainstay in Newark for over 20 years and annually gives to numerous organizations including the DFRC-Blue Gold, Food Bank of Delaware, SL24, Newark Charter School, Delaware Restaurant Association, Rotary Club of Newark, UDance, Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company, Water is Life, Special Olympics, Blood Bank of Delaware, Fraternal Order of Police, Christiana Care, Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, and many others.

Lang Development Group continues its charitable outreach and expands upon these measures through our creation of the Lang Cares Foundation. So far, Lang Cares has created a scholarship program at Newark Charter School, partnered with Wilmington Head Start for a summer camp on Centerville Road, and donated to numerous local organizations including SL24: UnLocke the Light, Newark PAL, Chapel Street Players, and Delaware Dance Company, among others.

Lang Cares Foundation was created by Jeff and Karyn Lang along with the commitment and help from their family members and business partners.
