When you establish a Scholarship Fund with Jefferson Community Foundation, you give countless students the opportunity to pursue their dreams while achieving your own charitable goals. Whether you want to establish a legacy, honor a loved one, or give back to your alma mater, JCF will work with you to create a scholarship uniquely your own. 

Because scholarship funds benefit individuals, they are governed by special rules and legal requirements. Jefferson Community Foundation works diligently to ensure all funds comply with these regulations and fulfill your charitable goals.

We created the Deb Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor Deb’s commitment to helping young people thrive. We wanted to provide opportunity to young people who might not have the best grades but who were giving back to their community, something that Deb cared deeply about. This scholarship fund allows Deb’s vision of a broader cross section of students to continue to follow their educational dreams. Something Deb felt very strongly about.
