Our community’s most impactful resource is not money. It is changemakers like you. Changemaking is not an ethereal, undefined concept. It is a set of values, practices, and skills learned over time: empathy, the courage to speak up and engage, and the practice of giving whether it be time, ideas, or money.
JCF serves as a platform for changemakers to be informed and strategic. We want you – altogether as a community – to make the greatest impact because you are connected and collaborative. One person’s actions amplify into group action, which turns into a mighty movement to address unmet needs.
With growing momentum, Jefferson Community Foundation (JCF) demonstrates the agility and deftness with which we can influence change and create positive impacts. We are succeeding in our mission because we are actively engaged in community. Each day we establish connections with nonprofits and local leaders, build relationships with changemakers, and develop the internal systems that empower us to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our grantmaking.
Our readiness, our ability to respond with clear intentions and purpose, that is a direct result of the generous support of donors.
Jefferson Community Foundation (JCF) is funded primarily by people like you, people who understand that having a central connector—across issues and sectors—makes a stronger community better able to navigate uncertain times.
By giving to JCF, you are supporting:
• A centralized resource for philanthropic insights and strategies.• A landscape knowledge of needs and opportunities that results in greater cumulative impact.• Competitive fees for fund management services.• A strong JCF with effective systems, efficient operations, and an unmatched workplace culture of equity, accountability, and hope.• Increased operating capacity, so that we can serve all 30,000 residents of Jefferson County with a diverse network capable of meeting crises head on, and one adept at navigating systemic issues with collaboration and innovation.
JCF Community Builders pledge $1,000 to $10,000 a year for five years. Now more than ever, JCF needs to remain responsive to connect people who care with causes that matter in Jefferson County.
