Jack and Jill of America
Jack and Jill of America is a membership organization dedicated to nurturing future leaders by supporting children through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty.
March of Dimes and Jack and Jill of America, Inc. have worked together since the 1960’s and officially became partners in 2011. The focus is on the March of Dimes mission engagement and programs that raise awareness and funds to prevent prematurity, especially around health disparities. Together we are ensuring that all babies get a chance for healthy lives.
Partnering together over the years, Jack and Jill of America through their 240 chapters nationwide that represent over 30,000 family members, has been involved with efforts from help to end polio to volunteering for events in local March of Dimes Chapters. Most recently, each Jack and Jill chapter plans annual March of Dimes programming activities that include March for Babies and Prematurity Awareness Month. Through these March of Dimes service projects, Jack and Jill of America creates a medium of contact for children to stimulate their growth and development.
Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated is an African American organization formed during the Great Depression and was founded by the Late Marion Stubbs in 1938. It consisted of Twenty mothers who came together to discuss creating an organization to provide social, cultural and educational opportunities for youth between the ages of two and nineteen.
