The Dupaco Foundation further illustrates Dupaco’s mission to improve your financial and personal well-being. It was established in 2011 to honor the retirement of longtime Dupaco President and CEO, Robert W. “Bob” Hoefer. And it provides support for many of our strategic partnerships and financial empowerment programs.
