About Us


To accelerate and bolster the success of nonprofit organizations with the highest potential to achieve breakthrough results on some of the most pressing problems facing the United States and the Jewish people.

We do this by pursuing a venture philanthropy approach – identifying a highly selective set of grantees to support with meaningful funding and deep strategic engagement and support.

The organizations that we believe are most promising have:

Game-changing ideas

Excellent leaders

Measureable results

Sustainable approaches

The Jacobson Family Foundation will also provide direct support in our community to assist families in need and help them improve their own lives.
