The Jernigan Foundation was started in 2006 out of a desire to serve together as a family and use the gifts and resources we’ve been given to bless our communities and the world. We have supported many things we are passionate about through the years, but at times felt a little scattered in our giving.

In 2018, we decided to change that and really hone in on where our hearts were calling us to give. What you see throughout this site is the result of that process and we’re more excited than ever to be investing in the changes we want to see in the world.


We have big goals. We have wild dreams. Our vision is a world full of

empowered, flourishing people, families and communities.
Hopeful Hands
Hopeful Child


To achieve our vision we intend to invest in solutions that

empower the vulnerable, at-risk, and defenseless toward a flourishing future.

Our board is our family, and we’re grateful to be serving together!
