Mission Statement

Founded in 1968 to provide an avenue for Jack and Jill members to focus their philanthropic contributions, the Foundation was born. As the phianthropic partner of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., the Foundation addresses issues affecting African American children and families, by investing in programs and services that create a strong foundation for children to thrive long-term.

Description

Jack and Jill Foundation is celebrating over 50 years of charitable philanthropy in underserved communities of color. We have a history of making transformational change in partnership with Jack and Jill of America, Inc chapters, however the opportunity to set the standard for high impact philanthropy has presented itself. The Foundation is committed to relizing its vision to transform African American communities - one child at a time with our "CloseTheGAP" campaign. The Foundation Board has approved a pilot program with $100,000 to begin paying student tuition debt to ensure they graduate in May 2020. We are establishing for the first time a collaborative campaign with Jack and Jill of America, Inc. with a goal to raise $2M for a scholarship endowment.

The Foundation's other philanthropic focus areas are: Health/Wellness, Education also covers College Prep and Literacy and Building Strong Families.
