Corporation Continues Tradition of Giving with the Community Foundation

In 2002 when ChemFirst, which had a manufacturing facility in Pascagoula, was acquired by DuPont, the organization decided to dissolve its foundation and transfer its assets to the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson.  The fund would become the ChemFirst/FirstMississippi Corporation Charitable Endowment Fund and has supported numerous causes in central Mississippi such as the United Way of the Capital Area and the North Madison County Excel By five program among others.
