The Fabric of Community

• JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI •
"Being in this pivotal moment of having to redefine what makes a community, and what community means to us, we can reclaim our sense of what matters and reconnect to the things that bring us together, rather than the things that keep us isolated.

I see people saying, ‘It may just be my corner of the world, but here are things I can do.’ So we should ask ourselves, ‘Are you sewing things together? Are you part of the fabric making?’ People are realizing we are in this together.”

- Jane Alexander, President and CEO, Community Foundation for Mississippi

At the Community Foundation for Mississippi, we imagine a Mississippi where every community is connected to the resources, knowledge, and tools to create meaningful and lasting change – for Mississippi, for good. Forever.

We are engaged in world building, imagining what is possible for public life, education, community development, arts and culture, and other areas of charitable philanthropy in Jackson and Mississippi, with our partners and investors.

When we engage in reimagining public life, anything is possible! A spark of imagination is a necessary ingredient for change to happen. Before change can happen, somebody has to imagine what that change looks like.

If you would like to explore a new civic covenant and a shared vision for our Capital City, volunteer or nominate someone to participate in our upcoming Public Innovators Virtual Lab with #TheHarwoodInstitute #turnoutward www.jacksonready.formississippi.com.

If you are for Mississippi for GOOD - get involved with volunteer opportunities through our statewide partner Volunteer Mississippi. MSHUBNETWORK.COM

If you are interested in creating something that lasts FOREVER, contact us to become part of our Legacy Circle or to discuss a Planned Gift. www.formississippi.org

#NowMoreThanEver

The government solution is on the way. The people solution is here today

Thousands and thousands of Mississippians are out of work. They don't know when they'll get their next paycheck. They need to feed their families. Extra Table is hard at work helping to make that happen. A generous and anonymous benefactor offered a $20,000.00 match to everything we raise in the next several weeks under the #nowmorethanever campaign during this global pandemic.

Now more than ever it is important for you to give to Extra Table and double your money as we will use 100% of the money raised to purchase healthy food (and we buy wholesale and in bulk), and deliver that food directly to the agencies that are on the front lines and are getting food to those who are in need.

Bringing Service Home

“I was born and raised in Mound Bayou, MS where service was taught as a value early on by my family and other members of the community. Service to me means maintaining the respect for traditions and values.”
