Dear Friends,

In our continuing effort to ensure the health and safety of our staff and guests, John F. Kennedy Memorial Foundation offices have adopted a hybrid workplace model. JFK Foundation is fully staffed and fully operational. All staff members continue to work remotely with allocated in-office time. If you would like to request a meeting with a member of our staff, our preferred method of contact is via email, located on our “Contact” page.

All of us at JFK Foundation thank you for being a part of our community. JFK Foundation has an important role to play in serving families, children and teens of Coachella Valley.

Our community needs us!

And we need you!
