The Jackson Foundation

Founded in 1981 by business executive and philanthropist Andrew J. Asch Jr., the Jackson Foundation is a private family foundation that seeks to enrich community life in the metro Richmond region. Mr. Asch’s keen interest and civic involvement in education, social services, historic preservation, cultural arts, the environment and public policy issues are reflected in the broad portfolio of nonprofit agencies that have been supported by the foundation. The vision of the foundation is to be a perpetual resource for leveraging opportunities that will strengthen and enrich our increasingly diverse community. Innovative philanthropy that results in relevant, sustainable programs remains the focus of our mission along with initiatives to strengthen agencies through strategic capacity building grants.

Throughout its history, the foundation has been a leader in supporting start-up organizations that today provide ongoing educational enrichment for youth; economic development, housing and job-training in low-income neighborhoods; increased access to community-based cultural and performing arts training; and many safety-net and social welfare services for often neglected and vulnerable members of our community.

Funding Priorities

The foundation is interested in grant proposals that address one or more of the following program areas:

Education: Fostering financial independence is critical to the vitality of our region. Therefore, priority will be given to programs targeted to older teens, young adults and low income citizens offering education and career development support. Programs designed to improve access to learning opportunities for older youth and young adults, employ alternative education models, drop-out prevention efforts and work-force development strategies are encouraged to apply for support.

Community Development: Programs that promote safe neighborhoods and violence prevention; affordable housing and revitalized neighborhoods; and create opportunities for increased civic engagement.

Conservation & Environment: Programs that increase environmental awareness and educational outreach to underserved children and their families.

Social Services/Welfare: Programs that provide critical basic human needs to high-risk, vulnerable families and citizens.

Arts & Culture: Funding will be limited to smaller community-based programs or agencies that seek to increase access and participation in visual and performing arts experiences for underserved children and their families.

GRANTS

  • Agencies submitting proposals must have an active portrait on GiveRichmond.  Please contact Phillip Giaramita at The Community Foundation 804-330-7400 for assistance in creating your agency portrait.
  • The foundation awards grants to organizations which are tax-exempt under IRS Section 501 (c) (3) and are not a private foundation as described under Section 509 (a).
  • Proposals will be accepted from agencies that directly serve residents of metro Richmond, including Richmond City, Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico, Goochland and Powhatan counties. Proposals from Petersburg area agencies may be accepted on a limited basis pending available resources.
  • Smaller, community-based organizations that may be perceived as “higher-risk” and who do not enjoy broad community support are encouraged to apply.
  • Grants will not be made to individuals or endowments.
  • Grants will not be made to religious, fraternal, or athletic groups if the programs are designed to exclusively benefit its membership.
  • Grants for core or general operating support will not receive strong consideration for funding.

The foundation provides support to nonprofit agencies through one of two grant strategies: annual competitive grants or designated capacity building projects. Agencies may apply for only one type of grant in the same calendar year.

Annual Competitive Grants:
Annual competitive grants should reflect the funding priority interests of the foundation as outlined above. These grants may be for a time-limited project, program expansion or to test a pilot program. Requests for general operating support are highly discouraged. Generally, competitive grants will support projects for one year; a limited number of multi-year awards may be negotiated. Agencies receiving three consecutive competitive grants may Not apply for additional funding for one calendar year. The foundation will continue to give priority to agencies that seek innovative methods for addressing ongoing or emerging community needs. Collaborative solutions will receive higher consideration.

Capacity Building Grants:
High performance agencies understand the key components of organizational capacity and continually seek to strengthen each area. They include: governance and leadership, mission and strategy, program delivery, impact and accountability, strategic relationships, resource development and internal operations and management. Implicit in these core areas are human resource management, knowledge management, technology infrastructure, legal, fiscal and public accountability and collaboration.

The Foundation is committed to the long-term viability of many of the agencies it has historically supported. A limited number of capacity building grants will be awarded each year, with preference to agencies who have previously received competitive support. Providing targeted support for organizational development increases an agency’s ability to create, deliver, expand, evaluate and modify effective services. Grants may be extended for up to three years depending on the successful completion of annual project objectives. Agencies engaged in capacity building projects are Not eligible for simultaneous annual competitive grants.

Agencies applying for capacity building support are strongly encouraged to contact the Executive Director 4-6 weeks prior to submitting a proposal.

All agencies must submit one (1) hard copy and one (1) electronic copy – pdfs, word documents, excel files – of the following information:

Summary Face Sheet:

  • Full contact information including agency name, contact person name and title, mailing address, phone number, email address and website address if available.
  • Type of grant requested and Project Summary
  • Project timeframe
  • Amount requested from the Foundation, how the funds will be applied and total project budget

  • Description of services offered and how they are provided. How does the community learn about the agency and the project? How are clients identified and referred to the agency and the project? What are the project operating hours? Describe the agency’s physical space in relation to the project.
  • How many people are served annually by the agency and the project? What types of information are reported to agency supporters and how
    frequently?
  • Problem or need to be addressed by grant and how agency clients or constituents are affected.
  • What assets or skill sets does the agency possess which makes it best suited to address the stated problem or need? Are other agencies providing
    similar services to your constituency; is there any duplication of effort?
  • Specific strategies and activities the proposed project will implement to positively impact the problem. How will clients benefit? How will the project operate? What resources are needed to provide the proposed services? Are other community partners required to deliver effective services?
  • Define the proposed project results in measurable terms. How will “success” be defined? Describe how the project outcomes will be collected,
    analyzed and reported. (Note: The evaluation plan of the proposed project is an important element in determining potential Foundation support) How will the proposed project be sustained both financially and organizationally after the Foundation funding period is completed?

Agency Financials:

  • A project budget that includes a detailed revenue and expense plan, committed sources of support, in-kind contributions and other pending grant applications. The expense plan should be accompanied by a budget narrative that describes each line in the budget and how the cost was determined.
  • Current approved agency operating budget including both planned and year to date actual revenue and expenses. A statement of cash flow should be included.
  • Previous year operating budget including both planned and actual results.

Agencies applying for Capacity Building support should also include:

  • A statement outlining the specific need for capacity building support.
  • How will the proposed project enable your agency to deliver more effective programs?
  • Is this request board driven and if not, does staff have the full support of the board to pursue this request and implement anticipated
    recommendations?
  • Does the agency have a current strategic plan that provides direction for the next three years?

Grant Reporting Requirements

All grantees are required to submit progress reports within one year of receipt of funds.
