Jefferson County Community Foundation


Strategic philanthropy bridges ‘what is‘ and ‘what can be‘. 

Unite with like-minded people who want to pool their charitable resources to address the needs of our community. Giving Circles provide social and educational benefits for members as they share hopes and visions for our community, research community needs, and make collective decisions. It is a participatory process that strengthens the lives of all involved.

Jefferson County Community Foundation provides for the management of funds and support of the circles’ activities so that Giving Circle members can spend their time on what they love best: Making a difference in our community
