The Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) is a public, not-for-profit, national organization founded in 1973 as a vehicle to perpetuate the memory of Jackie Robinson and his heroic achievements. It provides college and graduate school scholarships as well as leadership development opportunities for students of color with strong capabilities but limited financial resources. The Foundation is distinctive for the depth of its mentoring program, which results in a 97% graduation rate among its student constituents. The Foundation also strives to ensure that Jackie Robinson's commitment to social justice will be carried forth in the lives of these young people as they assume leadership roles throughout society.
