MacKenzie Scott Gift Will Bolster JP’s Work

This generous donation will help Jeremiah Program remain responsive to families and support our long-term goals.

At JP, we recognize that economic mobility is not a sprint but a marathon. As 2023 comes to a close, we are building upon our learning of the past 25 years, honoring our successes while remaining agile and responsive to evolving needs.

That is why we are so grateful to novelist and philanthropist MacKenzie Scott’s Yield Giving initiative for a generous gift that will help us sustain these critical efforts.

“We are deeply committed to the 2,000 moms and kids we are actively supporting,” said JP President and CEO Chastity Lord, “but we also feel an outsized responsibility to amplify our learning to help shift the conditions for the single moms experiencing poverty that we will never meet. The gift from MacKenzie Scott will aid in our being able to do this system-change work.”

We believe this commitment requires that we Do. Foster. Influence.

Do what JP does best: Leverage long- and short-term data insights to refine and strengthen our five-pillar offerings for single mothers and their children.

Foster a sustainable alumni network: Build an alumni network to support the social currency, power, and influence of JP families as they move through the various chapters of economic mobility.

Influence systems and public policy: Explore ways that JP can build partnerships through research, advocacy, and narrative change by sharing the stories and insights of current JP families and JP alumni.
