Mission Statement

Originally formed in 1930 by Pierre S. du Pont and headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, the Welfare Foundation is a IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses its assets and the income they generate to promote the social welfare of people and communities across the State of Delaware and in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania. 


The Welfare Foundation was proud to provide a grant in June to the Sussex County Habitat for Humanity to assist them with rehabilitating the Kimmeytown community in Georgetown.

Grant Recipient Spotlight

Sussex County Habitat for Humanity (SCHFH) envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Since 1991, they have worked to make affordable homeownership a reality for low-income families across Sussex County.


To date, SCHFH has built and sold more than 165 homes and made more than 400 home repairs, because often the most affordable home is the home you are already in. Many of these homes are located in Delaware’s focus neighborhoods and are part of transformative redevelopment strategies powered by community partners, including Welfare Foundation.
