About Us

Organized in 1978 as an independent, nonprofit I.R.C. Sec. 501 (c)(3) corporation, The Jacksonville State University Foundation is structurally separate from Jacksonville State University, and is governed by a board of directors. The JSU Foundation is operated exclusively for the benefit of Jacksonville State University.

The JSU Foundation is the preferred channel for private gifts to Jacksonville State University, through annual giving programs, planned gifts (e.g. securities, real estate, deferred gifts through wills or trusts), and capital and other special-purpose campaigns.

The overall mission of the JSU Foundation is to maximize private gift support for Jacksonville State University while laying the groundwork for future fundraising success, in order to aid the University in fulfilling its own mission of excellence in education, research, and service.

The JSU Foundation, through collaborative relationships with individuals, corporations, foundations, and other organizations, creates opportunities that will provide additional support to the students, programs, services, and educational community of Jacksonville State University. The Foundation will achieve its mission through image enhancement, effective asset management, entrepreneurial efforts, and development activities.

The Foundation invites you to make a gift and invest in quality education at Jacksonville State University.
