Partner with VJF

A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, the Venture Jobs Foundation raises charitable funds to provide mission related investments supporting community restoration of lower employment or higher poverty neighborhoods in Western and Central New York. We believe that investing in regional businesses for jobs creation can provide sound social return from philanthropic grants and donations.

Donations to the Venture Jobs Foundation, can qualify for income tax benefits, and we encourage potential donors to consult with their tax advisors to determine if and how a donation may qualify for favorable tax treatment.

We will publish periodic overviews of our programs and how they bring double bottom line benefits (social impact for the community and financial return for our investee businesses) that the Foundation seeks to achieve. We look forward to our supporters becoming an active voice for the Foundation.

Please consider supporting our mission.
