Honoring Our Past, Investing in Our Future

We are investing in our future by supporting the Jack and Jill of America Foundation’s Historically Black College or University (HBCU) College Gap Fund, which provides financial assistance to seniors at HBCUs in our area and beyond to help them complete their college education.

The Jack and Jill of America Foundation is among the first foundations established by African-American families in the United States.
