Source of Funds

Since its founding in 1946, the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has contributed well over $100 million to support chemistry, chemical engineering and related fields.

The Foundation does not engage in fund raising. The source of virtually all funds is the original philanthropic donation by Camille Dreyfus and investment returns on those funds.

In response to some recent inquiries, however, we would be pleased to accept unrestricted donations to support the work of the Foundation in the field of chemistry. If you are interested in making a contribution, please contact the Foundation at or call 212-753-1760.
