Jackson COVID-19 Action Network (JCAN) and the COVID-19 Response Fund We are working with over 40 community organizations and leaders collectively called the Jackson Covid 19 Action Network (JCAN) to address the immediate needs of our residents in Jackson County.  Some of you may have seen that we are collaborating with the United Way of Jackson County and have jointly established the COVID-19 Response Fund. The funds will be used to meet the basic needs of our residents to include diapers, food, and essential items, our nonprofits who help those individuals and the long term implications of this crisis.  To Donate, click here and select COVID-19 in the gift type.

OUR FUNDS:Your Fund’s spendable amounts are secure for this year. Our investment consultants at Merrill Lynch are closely watching the market and making adjustments to our      investments as needed.  Having said that, you may want to consider waiting to spend your amount for the time being until we get a better idea of both how the market reacts over time and what the growing community needs might be.


COMMUNITY NEEDS FUND: Our endowment funds are flexible and permanent.  Our Community Needs Fund is used for competitive grantmaking that meets the ever changing needs of Jackson County, today, tomorrow and for future generations.  We are closely monitoring this situation and will adjust grantmaking from this Fund as needed.
