Funding Guidelines

The Jack’s Family Fund is a non-profit charitable organization established to provide emergency financial assistance to members of the communities that Jack’s Family Restaurants (JFR) serve. To learn if you live or work in one of the communities we serve, please use our location finder.

Fund grants are made to assist those who have temporarily found themselves in need, but under normal circumstances are self-sustaining.

Our grants assist with:

  • Immediate, short- term needs of individuals who may be victims of disasters or other emergency hardship situations including floods, fires, riots, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and similar large-scale events, or
  • Emergency hardship caused by illness, death, accident, violent crime or other types of personal injury.
  • Community 501(c)(3) organizations working to respond to these types of needs on a broad scale. Interested organizations should complete and submit our Charitable Partner Inquiry form.

Grants are paid directly to the creditor (e.g. landlord, funeral home, utility company). Return to top
