Established in 2011

A founder of The Community Foundation, Bob Zelle wished to support causes important to him beyond his lifetime, and through a bequest to create this Fund, entrusted The Community Foundation to carry on his legacy. Junior Achievement offers grade-specific programming presented by community volunteers who teach students about economics, entrepreneurship, personal finance, workforce readiness, and other skills that students need to succeed in the real world. JA seeks to prepare our young people for the world of work, inspiring our future leaders and igniting a passion for excellence.
