Welcome to the Community Foundation
of Greater Jackson website.


During your visit, we’ll share how we work to Serve, Strengthen, and Support our communities.

We SERVE our donors who are Fund Creators.
Fund Creators establish charitable giving funds with us. They take advantage of the flexible and tax-efficient giving opportunities offered by Your Community Foundation. And, grants awarded by these funds support the work of charitable, educational, and religious organizations important to our Fund Creators. <<Learn more>>

We STRENGTHEN our nonprofit Partners.
Our Partners are local nonprofit organizations whose endowments we hold and manage. We strengthen our Partners by helping build their endowments through campaigns, planned-giving programs, and ongoing marketing efforts.

We SUPPORT the development and improvement of the Communities we serve.

These funds have invested more than $20 million in Madison, Rankin, and Hinds Counties over the past fifteen years. And, the best is yet to come as we work to improve and develop our Communities.           <<Learn more>>
