NATIONAL COMMUNITY INVESTMENT GRANT

The National Community Investment Grant is directly aligned with the Jack and Jill Foundation’s focus on Impact Investing. This grant gives us the opportunity to invest $85,000 in 2016 to independent non-profits in communities across America. As the philanthropic arm of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., the Foundation is thrilled to take the lead of investing in programs and services that create a strong foundation for African American children and families to thrive long-term. Our new commitment to Impact Philanthropy offers chapters the opportunity to meet the ever-changing needs of individual communities with the goal of transforming African American communities, one child at a time.
