“Community impact at DuPont means combining world-class science and innovation expertise with the passion of our 32,000 employees to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people in communities around the world.”
Patrick McCrummen, Global Leader, Community Impact
Beyond our day-to-day company purpose of empowering the world with essential innovations, we understand the power of people contributing their time, effort, or resources. We encourage employees around the world, at all levels, to be involved in their communities in whatever ways they can—while fostering a positive spirit of engagement with one another.

Right now, there aren’t enough qualified people to fill the STEM jobs available, especially in the U.S. In partnership with the Chemical Education Foundataion, DuPont inspires students to pursue STEM-based career pathways by hosting the state-wide "You Be The Chemist?" challenge, which encourages young students to engage with chemistry concepts and their real-world applications.
Around the world, as many as one in four people live in conditions that put their health and safety at risk. Every year, hundreds of DuPont employees volunteer with Habitat for Humanity globally to build new houses and rebuild and revitalize neighborhoods, using energy-efficient building materials donated by DuPont. We support these efforts through a corporate grant.?
STEM education is vital to DuPont’s future. And to everyone’s.?
As a science company, DuPont is committed to inspiring and cultivating the next generation of cutting-edge solvers. We do this by supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education programs and promoting hands-on, inquiry-based learning from elementary to post-doctoral education. And we offer career support programs for teachers and young professors.
