Our Philosophy: 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.
Our Commitment: Strengthening our ability to champion solutions essential to the future success of our children is at the top of our agenda. We will not rest despite the progress that is being made as it is only in this way that we can influence national policy related to developing future leaders.
Jack and Jill of America Foundation, Inc. believes that leaders are made, not born. Since building tomorrow's leaders is at the core of the Foundation's activities, we have developed a five-point strategy for achieving this goal. This strategy, along with the community service agenda, sets the framework upon which the Foundation's grant making rests. Programs the Foundation funds must embrace at least one of the following five points.
