DuPont Donates 1 Million to Fund Free Sundays at Delaware Art Museum
WILMINGTON, DE (December 11, 2018) – E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont) generously fulfilled their $1 million dollar pledge made to the Delaware Art Museum late last year. This gift, which honors the Delaware-based company’s priorities and corporate giving philosophy to invest in its communities, underwrites the Museum’s Free Sundays program.
As funding for the arts diminish, DuPont’s investment in the Museum’s strategic vision to be a welcoming and inclusive hub, emphasizes the company’s commitment to our region by making art accessible to a diverse range of audiences. The community is invited to partake in “Free Sundays Presented by DuPont.” The Delaware Art Museum is also free on Thursday evenings between 4:00pm – 8:00pm thanks to the support of generous individuals.
