Due to the continuing impact of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Jackson Foundation will continue to accept requests to support general operating expenses during the June 1, 2021 cycle. Funding can support increases in service demands and expanding infrastructure and operating needs, as well as assist future recovery and rebuilding efforts that result in a more sustainable operating structure. If preferred, organizations may submit a traditionally accepted request for programatic support.

Art 180

Although the COVID19 crisis has prevented teens from regularly being onsite at Art 180’s Atlas center, these enterprising students took the initiative to start their own podcast and will help develop Atlas’s new Youth Media Center.

YWCA

Jackson Foundation was an early investor in the YWCA’s outreach and prevention programming. High school and college students learn about healthy relationship building and violence prevention strategies through community outreach events and programs.

Communities in Schools of Chesterfield

As Chesterfield County schools returned to in-person learning, Communities in Schools of Chesterfield continues to provide necessary wraparound services and advocate for students and families in need.

Communities in Schools of Richmond

Communities in Schools of Richmond is an integral partner to Richmond Public Schools, and supporting CIS’s efforts on behalf of middle and high schools students continues to be an important priority to the Jackson Foundation.

Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities

VCIC is a trusted partner for K-12 and higher education students and facilitates workshops to promote inclusion at schools across Virginia.

Sacred Heart Center

For several years, the Jackson Foundation has supported wraparound services for families in the Latinx community, including during Covid, which has increased the demand for basic human support services as well as virtual programming.

The Valentine Museum

The Valentine has provided onsite programming for middle and high school youth in the Richmond area with support from the Jackson Foundation. Due to the pandemic, The Valentine seamlessly transitioned to virtual learning, providing educational resources and tours and engaging area students.

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 organizations that have been supported by the foundation. Innovative philanthropy that results in relevant, sustainable programs remains our focus, along with initiatives to strengthen organizations through strategic capacity building grants.
 
Throughout our 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 underserved and vulnerable members of our community. Since its inception, the Foundation has provided over $24 million in philanthropic support throughout the metro Richmond region.
 
Our Vision: The vision of the Jackson Foundation is to be a perpetual resource for advancing opportunities that will strengthen and enrich our diverse community.
 
Our Mission: The mission of the Jackson Foundation is to honor the legacy of our founder by investing in education and services in the metro Richmond region to enrich and uplift the lives of those most in need.

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 with a particular emphasis on behavioral health services.

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

GRANTS

  • An updated profile on the ConnectVA Nonprofit Directory is strongly recommended for consideration of your grant application.
  • 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 organizations that directly serve residents of metro Richmond, including Richmond City, Chesterfield, Henrico, Hanover, Goochland and Powhatan counties.
  • 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.

The foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations through one of two grant strategies: annual competitive grants or designated capacity building projects. Organizations may apply for only one type of grant in the same calendar year.
Organizations are strongly encouraged to contact the Executive Director 4-6 weeks prior to submitting a proposal.

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 program, expansion or to pilot a new strategy. Requests for unrestricted operating support may receive lower priority. Generally, competitive grants are awarded for one year; a limited number of multi-year awards may be negotiated. The foundation will continue to give priority to organizations that seek innovative methods for addressing ongoing or emerging community needs. Collaborative solutions will receive higher consideration.
Organizations that have received three consecutive competitive grants may not be eligible for additional funding for one calendar year.  Please check with the Foundation. 

(These guidelines have been relaxed due to the current COVID-19 crisis. See the banner at the top of the home page.)

Capacity Building Grants:
High performance organizations 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, risk assessment and planning,  technology infrastructure, legal, fiscal and public accountability and collaboration.

The Foundation is committed to the long-term viability of many of the organizations it has historically supported. A limited number of capacity building grants will be awarded each year, with preference to organizations who have previously received competitive support. Providing targeted support for organizational development increases an organization’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 program objectives. Organizations engaged in capacity building projects are not eligible for simultaneous annual competitive grants.

All organizations must submit one (1) hard copy and one (1) electronic copy of the following information:

Summary Face Sheet:

  • Full contact information including your organization’s name, contact person’s name and title, mailing address, phone number, email address and website address if available.

  • How will the program’s “success” be defined in measurable terms? Describe how the program outcomes will be collected, analyzed, and reported. (Note: The evaluation plan is an important element in determining potential Foundation support.)
