Exploring new philanthropic roles and relationships for strengthening under-invested neighborhoods

The Jacobs Family Foundation was founded on the premise that philanthropy must not demean people, make them dependent, or fail to challenge and engage them in problem solving. Instead, it is the inherent dignity of people and the affirmation of people's ability to apply their talents, and hard work that truly makes lasting community change.

As a partner in San Diego’s Diamond Neighborhoods, the Jacobs Family Foundation supports resident ownership of the plans, processes, and assets of and for sustainable, meaningful community change.
