Gulfport, Fla. – The Jessie Ball duPont Fund has pledged $100,000 over the next three years to support the activities of the Center for Excellence in Elder Law at Stetson University College of Law in Tampa Bay, Fla.

“The generosity of the Jessie Ball duPont Fund will help Stetson significantly expand its community education programs for seniors,” said Vice-President and Dean Darby Dickerson. “This will let us take the next step in a series of successful outreach programs.”

Combined with other gifts and resources, the $100,000 pledge will help fund various activities and programs educating seniors about consumer scams in the high-tech, elder-friendly Eleazer Courtroom on Stetson Law’s Gulfport campus.

“Through education, we hope to help our elders to learn more about the court system, dispute resolution and how to avoid becoming victimized by scams and frauds,” said Rebecca Morgan, who holds the Boston Asset Management Faculty Chair in Elder Law and directs Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Elder Law.
