Our Mission

to protect and support what is underserved: children, animals, women, and the environment.

Our Vision

JEM is dedicated to improving the welfare of children and women, along with preserving wildlife and the planet. We aim to empower organizations in these areas through charitable giving. The JEM Project seeks to inspire global conservation through impact funding of sustainability efforts, land purchase, ocean health programs, and environmental research. 

Our Core Goal

The JEM Project works with nonprofits, researchers, and innovators to create lasting solutions for children, animals, women’s empowerment, and environmental conservation. JEM aims to inspire communities to protect these underserved entities for our common future.

Advance child welfare

through access to education, healthcare, family support, food programs 

Promote animal welfare

through rescue organizations, rehabilitation programs, educational outreach

Empower women

in their communities through local programs, loan accessibility, entrepreneurship mentoring, impact funding

Instigate environmental sustainability

through directed funds, conservation activities, research, technology

  • We ask that there be one grant application per organization.
  • Organizations with multiple branches or chapters may only submit one application for their organization in each state.
  • Programs and projects that include integration, partnership and collaboration with state and federal management agencies and universities are acceptable.
  • We value projects that increase impact and provide lasting change – projects must have a start and finish, set budget, and measurable results. We are also interested in:
    • small projects, (because they are often seeds of change);
    • projects that are built on collaboration with others;
    • projects that draw diverse people together (building new relationships);
    • and projects that evoke simplicity and self-giving generosity.


  • Government agencies and universities are not eligible to apply directly.
  • Grants MAY NOT be used for the following:
    • Capital campaigns with the exception of capital needs that significantly and measurably improve program effectiveness and impact.
    • General operating (overhead and other administrative costs are acceptable as they relate to the program and project for which funding is being requested).
    • Endowment.
    • Re-granting to other organizations or individuals.
    • Lobbying – IRS-defined lobbying activities are prohibited by federal law.
    • Partisan research and analysis, and non-permissible policy-related activities.
