Jackson Friends of the Library

The Jackson Friends of the Library (JFOL) supports the Jackson-Hinds Library System. Distributions from the fund are used for grants to enrich the holdings of the Jackson-Hinds Library System and for projects/services that will benefit patrons of the Jackson-Hinds Library System, determined by the Fund’s Advisory Board.

You can support JFOL in several ways at the Community Foundation for Mississippi. Each year, become a member of JFOL as an individual, family or corporate sponsor. Lifetime memberships are also available. Memberships support the Jackson Friends of the Library General Fund at CFM.

Donations can also be made to the Jackson Friends of the Library General Fund and Jackson Friends of the Library Endowment Fund.

As an endowment fund at a qualified community foundation in Mississippi, donors are eligible for a state tax credit equal to 25% of their gift to the JFOL Endowment Fund through Endow Mississippi. This program offers an incentive to encourage individuals, businesses and organizations to make lasting investments in their local communities through charitable giving. The minimum qualifying gift is $1,000.
