Delaware’s Journey

In Delaware, we started in 2006. After much planning, Choose Life Delaware, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware by its founders Farrah Morelli and Jim Cordie in February of 2008. In January of 2009, we received our IRS 501 (c) (3) tax exempt status.

Our mission is in affiliation with the national Choose Life Organization and its other associated state Choose Life organizations. We contribute our revenues from member donations to other Delaware organizations that support adoption rather than the abortion alternative. In addition, we make available to our members, a State of Delaware organizational license plate.

We began our membership campaign in April of 2009. Our goal to obtain 200 members was met in June 2010. The State of Delaware requires the submission of 200 member applications before it will issue the license plate. The first plates were issued in August 2010.

Choose Life Delaware is an all-volunteer organization with a volunteer board of directors. In addition, we have other volunteers throughout Delaware who contribute to advancement of our mission
