The George F. Jefferson Foundation (The GJeff Foundation) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, dedicated to helping build better futures for inner city children across the United States. Our mission strives to improve health, provide scholarship opportunities and enhance the skills of low income and underprivileged youth by providing many avenues for participation in organized sporting events.
The GJeff Foundation started in 2011 after suffering the loss of a friend, George F. Jefferson, to cardiomyopathy. It began with a desire to not only support organizations that research the disease but to build places for young adults to showcase their talents. Since then, the GJeff Foundation has grown into a community of families, coaches, educators and students that all share the same drive of uplifting their community and keeping it safe from harm.
The GJeff Foundations hope for the future is that every life that is touched by this program receives the warmth, care and feeling of family. As we build, our students build. As our students build, our hearts grow stronger!
