Our Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF) manages more than 300 funds established by people with philanthropic passions.
Many of our donors contribute to one or more of these existing funds, while others set up their own.
There is no right or wrong way to give. What’s important is giving in a way that helps you accomplish your philanthropic goals and JCCF is here to help. We keep our finger on the pulse of the community, so we can identify the community’s greatest needs and respond in a meaningful way. That might be supporting an existing program, developing a new one or encouraging a community partner to take a leadership role. It means rallying for the cause and asking others to join the effort. That’s why we are dedicated to connecting people who care with causes that matter. Causes that matter to them, their families and our community.
