Donate to a Cause
You can directly impact the local issues that matter most to you.
Donating to a specific cause allows you to make an impact in that area over time. You identify a specific or broad interest area (such as education, the arts, or affordable housing) and Jefferson Community Foundation ensures effective grantmaking within that field as the needs change. This type of fund allows your grantmaking to evolve as the needs within the field do and gives you peace of mind knowing that JCF will be there to identify the best nonprofits in the issue area you have selected to ensure your legacy lives on.
Your giving can evolve along with your field of interest.
