Building Assets of People, Families & Communities

Jessie Ball duPont understood that strong communities needed individuals and families that had the resources they needed to live full, active and engaged lives. The Jessie Ball duPont Fund seeks to build democratic communities where all people can enjoy the wealth and health of the nation.

We focus our efforts on supporting organizations and activities that:

  • Help individuals and families build their financial assets;
  • Ensure that individuals and families have access to safe and affordable housing;
  • Provide young people access to work opportunities that prepare them for success;
  • Help low-wealth and first-generation students pursue post-secondary education.
