Jefferson Community Foundation maintains current knowledge of the landscape of challenges and opportunities facing our community. We know which organizations are working on what, where the strengths are and where we have gaps to fill. We share this information with local donors so they can have the greatest impact possible. If you have questions about specific issues or trends, please call us.
Additionally, when community members come together to work on a specific issue through grantmaking and convening, we provide a home for them and assist. These are called “Field of Interest Funds”. JCF currently has four Field of Interest Funds:
- The Fund for Women & Girls, working to ensure that women and girls in Jefferson County are safe, secure, equal and empowered.
- United Good Neighbors, providing for the basic human needs of our community for over 65 years.
- Housing Solutions Network, engaging community members to co-create solutions to our affordable housing crises.
- Olympic Carbon Fund, helping farmers and other land stewards engage with the soil in ways that sequester atmospheric carbon while restoring healthy soils and ecosystems.
