Jacksonville Boosters Foundation

The Jacksonville Boosters Foundation (JBF) was established in 2003 as a tax-exempt, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation. The primary mission of the Jacksonville Boosters 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.

During the past decade, the Jacksonville Boosters Foundation has provided nearly $400,000 in grants and funds for projects in Jacksonville. This includes grants to Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery, Historic Jacksonville, Inc., Friends of St. Joseph’s, the Jacksonville Community Center, Jacksonville Woodlands Association, Britt Music and Art Festival, Art Presence Art Center, Jacksonville Elementary School, and the City of Jacksonville. Projects include paying for monthly landscaping costs in Peter Britt Gardens, for materials to replace benches in downtown Jacksonville and for the new “A Path Through Time” historic plaques embedded in the sidewalk in front of New City Hall. Boosters Club members provide volunteer support labor on most JBF funded projects.

The Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of community volunteers, Club members, and the sitting Club president. The Investment Committee oversees the investment program and makes recommendations to the board of directors regarding investment policy and strategy. The investment committee is made up of community volunteers and JBF board members.
