Sussex County Health Coalition hosted another successful Meet the Funder in June with Laffey-McHugh. Todd Veale joined the Laffey-McHugh Foundation as Executive Director in January 2019. He spent most of his career at MBNA America Bank, N.A. in several executive roles between 1991 and 2006.
The Laffey McHugh Foundation is a private non-profit foundation established in Delaware in 1959 by Alice Laffey McHugh, the only child of John P. Laffey, who was appointed the first Head of the DuPont Legal Department in 1902; her first cousin and closest friend, Gerardine Laffey Connolly; and Gerardine’s husband, prominent attorney Arthur G. Connolly, Sr. They wanted to create a legacy of giving and support for the neediest people in the community.
