So Much Good Happens Here

The Jawonio Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation whose purpose is to provide funds to support children, adults and families with developmental disabilities, mental health challenges and chronic medical needs.  

Founded in 1992, the Foundation mission is to provide program enhancements to the lifespan services of Jawonio Inc. in both Rockland and Westchester Counties and organizations who align with our mission. 

We solicit and receive funds from individuals and private foundations, and accept gifts through charitable trusts, IRAs, stock, monthly giving, fundraising events and direct appeals. 

Foundation funds are used to provide program enhancements and unfunded activities such as social, recreational, and creative arts experiences as well as equipment and supplies. We rely on the compassion, trust and generosity of our donors who help to make miracles happen every day for individuals with special needs and the larger community.
