About US

our story

J3 Foundation (Los Angeles) was founded in 2011 with initial work being to fund foundations and charities focused on child development.  It was always the intent of J3 to create and provide its own programs to reduce or eliminate illiteracy in high need schools that serve students of color in Los Angeles. 


Since 2017, J3 has expanded and hired its own director to fully engage in program development.  Our board of directors meets quarterly to review our evaluations and engage in strategic planning.  Our advisory board and thought partner groups meet three times per year to expand our thinking and help us enact our strategic goals. 


For more information about our strategic plan for 2018-2022, contact Board of Directors Chair Joe Blackstone at joe@J3FoundationLA.org.
