Supporting Children’s Success

We support programs that improve quality of life for our most vulnerable fellow citizens; placing special emphasis on those that provide the disadvantaged with the tools to succeed educationally and professionally.

The foundation was formed in March of 2012 through the vision of John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery. We are excited to have you visit our website to learn about our goals and programs.

John Jordan believes in active philanthropy and focusing locally to impact programs for educational attainment and enhancing people's lives. The Foundation will encourage collaboration for the most impact to our community and help organizations excite their donors with matching grants.

The John Jordan Foundation is an amazing organization. At the center of our most critical initiatives is the Foundation’s support and vision to focus on investing in programs that achieve results and in children who will grow through its support. Building a prosperous community and vital economy relies on visionary leadership – I count the John Jordan Foundation in that group for Sonoma County.

First 5 Sonoma County is committed to ensuring that every child in our community is ready to succeed when they enter kindergarten. We're proud to co-invest with the John Jordan Foundation to support optimal early childhood development, including expanding access to quality preschool and the availability of pediatric dental care for low-income children. Through aligned and leveraged funding, we multiply our power to mitigate the negative impact of poverty on children and change the trajectory of their lives.

The John Jordan Foundation is committed to improving opportunities for children and families by targeting programs that provide the disadvantaged with tools to succeed educationally and professionally. NBCC would not be able to reach those that need our help the most without this valuable resource.

Madeleine Keegan O’Connell - Chief Executive Officer, YWCA Sonoma County

YWCA Sonoma County is beholden to The John Jordan Foundation for funding therapy and advocacy for Sonoma County families who struggle with the devastating effects of domestic violence. For children, witnessing violence between one’s parents or caretakers is the strongest risk factor of transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next. JJF’s investment in YWCA Sonoma County directly impacts our ability to address risk factors of domestic violence including chronic homelessness, poverty and neglect while providing nurturing environments to heal from the trauma of violence.
