Programs to Support

The JPS Foundation serves as a bridge to connect community leaders and benefactors with JPS Health Network to create healthier communities, particularly for those most in need. While JPS receives some property tax dollars, the care that JPS provides could never be done without additional funding. The JPS Foundation exists to secure philanthropic gifts, goods and grants, providing service and support to improve the health status of families who rely on JPS for healthcare.
