WHAT IS A COMMUNITY FOUNDATION?
Community foundations are grantmaking public charities that are dedicated to improving the lives of people in a defined local geographic area. They bring together the financial resources of individuals, families, and businesses to support effective nonprofits in their communities and play a key role in identifying and solving community problems.
Give to JCF Core Support Fund
All of the work at JCF is made possible through donations from local donors like you. By giving directly to Jefferson Community Foundation your gifts allow us to be out in the community, agile and responsive to emerging needs. The Community Foundation staff spends significant time out in the field so we can offer donors unique insights into community needs and organizations.
With your support, we are better able to build community resilience and community capacity by connecting people and providing a hub for local changemakers and nonprofit organizations.
Additionally, your gifts allow us to keep a finger on the pulse of Jefferson County philanthropic opportunities so we can provide information and guidance to help you determine how your gifts can have the greatest impact.
You can make a one-time donation or an annual pledge through JCF’s Community Builders program.
