The JSU Foundation, through collaborative relationships with individuals, corporations, foundations, and other organizations, creates opportunities that will provide additional support to the students, programs, services, and educational community of Jacksonville State University.
The Foundation will achieve its mission through image enhancement, effective asset management, entrepreneurial efforts, and development activities.
