A community foundation has one simple goal: to build up and improve that community - over time - through philanthropic donations, large and small. Endowments are never spent, but professionally handled and invested in projects and causes that will produce MORE income; perpetually investing all gains back into the community and helping them to keep giving forever. The Community Foundation of Jackson County, and our experienced managing board of local directors, adhere strongly to these principles and use them to exist as a strong catalyst for positive change within our own community.
