• 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.
