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.

Foundation opportunities for you…

The Dupaco Foundation can help first-time homebuyers realize the dream of homeownership by offering a $1,000 grant to use toward a mortgage down payment.

Details & Eligibility

Dupaco Foundation offers needs-based grants for nonprofit organizations and individuals.

  • Nonprofit Organizations: Dupaco Foundation is launching a new grant program to support nonprofit organizations and is not accepting applications at this time. The Nonprofit Grant Program will be an annual, competitive grant. Check back in April 2024 for more information.

Dupaco’s MoneyMatch is a matched savings account designed to encourage lower-income individuals and families to save for wealth-building assets — such as a home, vehicle or education — and build toward financial stability.
