Jacksonville Boosters Foundation

The Foundation was established in 2003 as a tax-exempt, 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation. The primary mission of the Foundation is to provide financial support for the restoration, preservation, maintenance and improvement of both public and nonprofit owned facilities in Jacksonville, Oregon. We also provide gifts/grants for the advancement of the arts to both public and nonprofit organizations in Jacksonville.

The Jacksonville Boosters Foundation (JBF) was pleased to provide over $28,000 in grants and funds for projects in Jacksonville during 2017. This included grants to Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery, Historic Jacksonville, Inc., Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Inc., the Jacksonville Community Center, Britt Music and Arts Festival, Jacksonville Elementary School, and the Randall Theater. Projects included paying for monthly landscaping costs in Peter Britt Gardens and for materials to replace ten benches in downtown Jacksonville. Boosters Club members provided volunteer support labor on most JBF funded projects and grants.


The Foundation is in the fourth year of its five year plan to double the size of our endowment by the end of 2019. Endowment earnings are used to fund approved projects and grants. Your help in growing our endowment has been and is greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to:
