JUMET CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

HISTORY

In 2005 Jan and Julie Jumet began taking the first steps towards one of their dreams – Bridging the Gap – be it in education, helping children in need, or other forward-moving causes.  They were able to create the Jumet Charitable Foundation – a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

While the Jumet Charitable Foundation may support a variety of causes, its current focus is in education.  The JCF is helping students going from high school to college by providing financial assistance and mentoring during their educational careers…thereby, bridging the gap towards obtaining a higher education.

The JCF, through its Founders, Board Members, Donors, and Sponsors, works with twenty-four students (on average) on an ongoing basis.  Through an application submission and Board selection process students from various high schools are selected annually for the JCF Scholarship.  Each student is selected based on financial need, grades, extra-curricular activity & community service, a brief essay, and an intrinsic desire for a higher education.  The students receive the scholarship each year of college so long as the requirements continue to be met.  The scholarship is paid on a semester basis to the college on behalf of the student's account.

In this ongoing process, the Founders and Board work with each student to mentor and support them personally throughout their college career.  The students are supported with general discussions, guidance on class selection, assistance with class content, resume writing, internship discovery and selection, interview preparedness, employment discovery, and ongoing career guidance.  After graduation, the JCF Founders and Board continue to work with the individuals on budgeting, savings, investments, and general life stewardship.

To date, the JCF has worked with over 60 students, including students who have graduated and students still attending college.  The JCF has provided over $525,000 in scholarships and hours of mentoring and support.  The JCF Founders work to operate the JCF on a 100% charitable ratio meaning all donations go directly to scholarships or related JCF activity, while all costs are paid personally by the Founders.

MISSION

The Jumet Charitable Foundation's current mission is to assist knowledgeable and talented students, who may lack mentors and/or financial means, by bridging the gap to a higher education through leadership and financial support. We strive to enable these individuals, who have an intrinsic desire for education, to achieve their goals and lead a more productive life in society.

The Jumet Charitable Foundation will work closely with the students on an ongoing basis as a mentor through the various stages of their education and life to act as leaders and mentors.  The Jumet Charitable Foundation's mission is not to provide handouts, but to provide tools for success.
