Who We Are
The Community Foundation of Jackson County, JCCF, Inc., actively works with you, your neighbors, co-workers and friends to build a family of charitable funds to support our local community. The Foundation is far more than a fund manager, we are the community’s heart and soul – providing community leadership to unite gifts of time, talent and funds to make a transforming impact on Jackson County. Earnings from the Foundation’s collection of community funds are distributed in the form of grants and scholarships to continually strengthen and improve our community – working to make Jackson County a great place to live, work and raise a family.
How We Help
With support from our donors, the Foundation is happy to support community projects and programs that create opportunities for Jackson County, its citizens and its communities.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Community foundations are public charities with a common purpose – to improve the quality of life in their local area. Through gifts of all sizes from people, organizations and corporations who care about their home towns and county, community foundations invest charitable funds in perpetuity so the earnings/income can be used as grants and scholarships to make a permanent impact on the community. A Community Foundation helps donors give to the charitable causes they care about, encourages the community to work together to accomplish a shared vision, and helps everyone better understand and address the needs of their county.
