JACK AND JILL OF AMERICA FOUNDATION

Jack and Jill of America Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Since its inception in 1968, the Foundation has distributed millions of dollars to communities all across America.

In so doing, the Foundation is fulfilling its shared vision with Jack and Jill of America, Inc. to invest in the future of our children. The Foundation supports programs that not only create opportunities and challenges for children to learn and practice leadership skills but also build leadership character in youth. The ultimate goal of every Foundation grant dollar is to empower young people to make the right life choices.

Programs funded by the Foundation are improving academic test scores, raising literacy and mathematical competencies, encouraging cultural consciousness and instilling moral and social responsibility in America’s youth.

The Foundation’s activities match the stated philanthropic interests of the Jack and Jill of America membership. To that end, the Foundation’s giving is directed to chapters, organizations and communities that are helping our children reach their fullest potential.
