Jefferson Community Foundation



Judith Chambliss & Allan Zee

“We came to Jefferson County several years ago from a larger city and had included that city’s Community Foundation in our bequests. We recognize that smaller communities have a more difficult time raising funds for charitable endeavors, and with this in mind, we looked at JCF when revising our wills.  We were impressed with the range of programs JCF already supports, and found numerous ways in which our interests fit perfectly with the options, including education, the arts, and food insecurity. This motivated us to support our community by establishing a legacy gift to JCF.”  


It is a special kind of donor who provides for the future of our community by making a legacy gift to the Community Foundation. Through a planned gift from your estate, we provide long-term stewardship of your charitable wishes. Your generosity and foresight allocate resources to our nonprofit organizations for decades to come.
