Giving Societies

Society-level donors are the lifeblood of our work at Nemours Children's. Through their support, our society members empower Nemours Children’s to be a beacon of hope to millions of children for generations to come. As strong and steadfast supporters of Nemours Children’s, society members enjoy regular communications about our vision for the future of children’s health as well as important updates on our world-class care. They also receive exclusive invitations to special donor events and are listed with other philanthropists in publications throughout the year.


The Nemours Society recognizes donors whose gift of $1,000 or more during the prior calendar year provides foundational support that enables Nemours Children’s to meet the unique and often complex needs of patients and families.

The Founder’s Society recognizes donors who honor the legacy of our founder, Alfred I. duPont with their transformational cumulative support of $1 million or more. Through their commitment to our mission, Founder’s Society members advance children’s health locally, regionally and elsewhere. Contributions of this magnitude help us achieve bold visions and ambitions that go well beyond medicine.

The 1936 Society recognizes donors who support Nemours Children’s Health through the commitment of a planned gift such as a will, trust, life insurance policy, retirement plan or annuity. 

Nemours Children’s was brought to life through an estate gift set up by Alfred I. duPont in the early 1930s. Based on his wishes, the Nemours Foundation was incorporated in 1936, and to honor that generosity, we have created the 1936 Society to recognize donors who share that same vision of planning ahead for the needs of our children.

Join The Nemours Society with your Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and, in some cases, certain illiquid* assets, to a public charity.
