Greater Jefferson Fund

This unrestricted fund is the backbone of the Jefferson Community Foundation. It’s designed so that its resources can be used to create the maximum community benefit. It represents the spirit of the Foundation. It’s the entire community giving back to secure the future.

Twenty people and organizations that provided an initial gift of $5,000 each established the Greater Jefferson Fund. Income from it is used to support worthy projects throughout the greater Jefferson area.

The foundation board hopes to grow the Greater Jefferson Fund so that it can make more meaningful donations in future years. Your generosity to this fund helps community advocates support programs that create a stronger future for the Jefferson area.

Zero Suicide of Jefferson County was one of the 2022 Spring Grant Recipient. The Greater Jefferson Fund provided $3,500 towards the creation and installation of suicide prevention window decals on City of Jefferson Police Department Vehicles.
