In the city of Newark, Delaware, where commerce meets community, Lang Development Group stands as a prominent figure in both. For over two decades, Lang Development Group has shaped the city’s skyline and also worked to enrich the lives of its residents.

With a focus on scholarship programs, community drives, charity events, and various other initiatives, Lang Cares Foundation aims to foster positive change and uplift those in need within the community it proudly calls home.

Central to Lang Cares Foundation’s mission is the desire to make a tangible difference in the lives of Newark residents.

One of the initiatives of Lang Cares Foundation is its annual Future Community Leaders scholarship program at Newark Charter School and Christiana High School for students who have demonstrated success and commitment in both their classrooms and communities.  (Congratulations to 2024 recipients Cassidy Lawhorn, Krish Shajpaul, and Max McCaffery!). The foundation has also collaborated with Wilmington Head Start to provide enriching summer camps, nurturing the development of young minds and fostering a love for learning about and caring for nature.

Beyond education, Lang Cares Foundation extends its support to a host of local organizations, including but not limited to SL24: UnLocke the Light, Newark PAL, Chapel Street Players, and Delaware Dance Company. By investing in the arts, sports, and community development, the foundation underscores its commitment to holistic growth and empowerment.

In addition, Lang Development Group’s annual contributions to organizations such as DFRC-Blue Gold, Food Bank of Delaware, and Ronald McDonald House of Delaware exemplify its dedication to making a difference on both local and regional scales. With Lang Cares Foundation, these efforts are magnified, amplifying the impact and fostering a culture of giving that permeates throughout the community.
