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.

Grant Recipient Spotlight

A Better Chance for Our Children provides adoption, foster care, and post-adoption services throughout Delaware. A key component of the post-adoption services provided is monthly support groups. Two support groups are offered, one for parents and one for teens. The support groups provide an opportunity for parents and teens to be with others who can truly understand their experience. These groups are outgrowing their current spaces, so an expansion to the A Better Chance for Our Children building in Wilmington is necessary.
