JACKSON — The Community Foundation of Greater Jackson has been recognized as among the top foundations of its kind in the country.

CF Insights assessed the more than 700 community foundations in the United States and recently released its Community Foundation Top 100 lists.

The Community Foundation of Greater Jackson was ranked 50th on the list of most active grant-makers. In 2009, the Foundation awarded over $2.2 million in grants from the over 200 charitable funds it holds.

This ranking should be a source of pride for the community, according to Doug Boone, President and CEO of the Foundation.

“The Foundation exists because of the generosity of the people of this community, and the investments these people make go right back into organizations they care about here. There’s a real relationship between the communities we serve and the Foundation,” he said.
