Jefferson County Community Foundation

STRONGER TOGETHERMAKING A DIFFERENCE CLOSE TO HOME. TODAY AND TOMORROW.

In partnership with donors, Jefferson County Community Foundation provides philanthropic leadership that assures the quality of life in our area now, and in the future. Here are some of the ways JCCF can assist: • Encourage gifts to endowments that benefit every person or family who calls this community home.  • Invest those endowment gifts so that they can make a difference in people's lives now, and for future generations. • Assure that the abundance reaped from those endowments furthers the work of the people who keep our community strong and vibrant. 

Each year, thousands of dollars flow from Jefferson County Community Foundation to support the good work of local charitable groups.  This ever-growing stream of local philanthropy begins in the hearts of people who have prospered here and want to give something back to the community. Whether they support a project with a pass-through gift or build a charitable legacy, whether they make a small memorial donation to honor a loved one or plan a bequest from a large estate, people who want to do something good for Jefferson County area find a pathway for their good intentions through JCCF. 

We are all heirs to the gifts entrusted to Jefferson County Community Foundation's stewardship -- the ones we benefit from today and the ones that will be here for future generations. We measure our success by the satisfaction in the hearts of our donors and by the optimism that shines in the eyes of those whose lives are made better through our work. These are the true hallmarks of Jefferson County Community Foundation.
