EVE winner, Employment: Sherry Magill's eureka moment came at a red light

Release Date: 

For her work in establishing the Jessie Ball duPont Center, Sherry Magill is the winner of the EVE Award in employment. Magill is president of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, a private foundation that annually awards about 300 grants totaling around $13 million to organizations across the United States.

As had been done in downtown Wilmington, Del., Magill was interested in bringing as many nonprofits as possible under one roof for financial reasons. Couple that with a desire to reduce energy costs, restore a community landmark and help revitalize downtown.

“I have a passion for downtown Jacksonville,” she said. “I saw it as an opportunity ready to explode.”

The Jessie Ball duPont Center opened in June 2015 and houses 15 nonprofits.
