The Foundation focuses on four specific areas: education and workforce development, economic development and job creation through entrepreneurial education, women’s initiatives and leadership development.

So, what does all that mean?

It means every day we get to work with individuals who are unemployed or under-employed and want to learn new skills to find a new or better job.  We get to work with area educators to ensure our students are prepared to enter the workforce.

We get to work with aspiring entrepreneurs who are brave enough to pursue the American Dream.  We get to work with emerging and established business owners to grow their companies and create jobs.

We get to work with young professionals, helping them develop the skills and confidence to step into leadership roles in our community.

We get to support the fastest growing business segment in the country, women business owners – who are currently growing at 1½ times the national average.

We get to work with men and women who volunteer their time, companies and foundations that share our vision of a vibrant business community and philanthropists who invest their money because they believe in what we do.

Finally, we get to support programs and services to positively impact Jacksonville’s business climate, promote a viable workforce and prepare tomorrow’s leaders today.

We invite you to join us.  If you would like to contribute your time and talent or invest financially in Jacksonville’s future, please contact me.
