To promote education and community involvement through charitable means.
The Ann Arbor Jaycees Foundation supports Washtenaw County's present and future through charitable means. The Foundation was formed in 1995 to act as a non-profit tax-deductible (501c3) fiduciary for Jaycees projects such as the AIDS Memorial Quilt, The Fourth of July Parade, and Food Baskets. Since then, the Foundation has been raising funds to achieve an endowment goal of $50,000.
This was obtained in 2005, leaving the Board of Trustees to develop its granting policies, guidelines and application processes in 2006. The first cycle for grant applications began in the Spring of 2007 and continues today.
Community projects supported by the Ann Arbor Jaycees Foundation:
1997 The AIDS Memorial Quilt Display
The Annual Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade
The Annual Easter Egg Scramble
