Jessie Ball duPont Fund

Jessie Ball duPont Fund


The Jessie Ball duPont Fund, in collaboration with Girl Scouts of the USA, supports adult training and services to girls.

Through the Jessie Ball duPont Fund's support of the Edith Macy Scholarship Endowment Fund, Girl Scout volunteers and staff have the opportunity to travel from across the country and around the world to attend Girl Scouts' own "university in the woods" at the Edith Macy Conference Center and John J. Creedon Education Center in Briarcliff Manor, New York.

The Edith Macy Conference Center complex is the site of skill enhancement courses for Girl Scout national and local staff and volunteers. Participants learn job-training skills or further their professional development at high-level management programs. Participants return with new skills and knowledge and a renewed commitment to their work. Through the support of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, scholarships enable participants to better serve the Girl Scout population at home and abroad.
