Jessie Ball duPont Society The Nemours Fund for Children's Health honors its most generous friends through membership in the Jessie Ball duPont Society, which recognizes individuals whose cumulative lifetime gifts total over $100,000.
Jessie Ball duPont, the widow of Nemours founder Alfred I. duPont, was an educated and astute businesswoman. Because of Mr. duPont's profound deafness, she often assisted her husband in his business dealings. After Mr. duPont's death in 1935, she quickly set about planning for a 60-bed orthopedic hospital on the grounds of Nemours, their Wilmington, Delaware estate. The small hospital, precursor to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, opened just five years later.
