JTC Foundation Inc. was founded on April 28, 2004. The name for the foundation was derived from Jason Thomas Camp and was created in his memory. Jason was killed in an automobile accident on March 11, 2004, leaving behind a daughter Kayla and a step-son Cameron. It was because of his two children and what was to become of their future that inspired our mission.
Our primary mission is to help the youth who have lost an immediate family member, are in a single parent family, are a foster child, or show a financial need. Any one of these events can be detrimental to a young person and can alter their focus on their future. We hope by offering a scholarship to those who have experienced such events, that it would help guide them in a positive direction.
JTC Foundation Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) public charity and is comprised of volunteers, friends, and family members. No one involved with the foundation receives a wage for the work they do. All the money that we collect goes towards helping our community and to pay for any operating costs. At times some of the operating costs are absorbed personally as part of our own contribution to the foundation which in turn is a contribution to our community.
The foundation not only benefits the youth, but in a way, it also benefits our members. Through helping those who have experienced similar events or needs, it makes us feel good to be able to contribute in loving memory of Jason Thomas Camp. Our foundation is about sharing…Sharing through friends, sharing through family experiences, and sharing through financial assistance. Giving to those who have lost…
Our contributions so far have been in the form of college scholarships. We began by raising money and offering 4-$500 scholarships to Brazoswood High School for their 2006 graduating seniors. The following year, for the graduating class of 2007, we awarded 8-$500 scholarships and included Angleton High School to our list of recipients. For 2008 we awarded 9-$500 scholarships which included Angleton, Brazoswood, and Brazosport High Schools. For 2009 we are awarding 9-$500 scholarships to Angleton, Brazoswood, and Brazosport High Schools. Our goal with this year’s fundraiser is to collect enough funds to expand to even more Brazoria County schools and possibly offer bigger awards next year. Our long term goals will still be focused on scholarships, but we would also like to start new projects that would benefit our community.
Won’t you please help us in accomplishing our goal of helping guide our children in a positive way? We are asking that you assist us by making a donation for a good cause!
Our newest event has been scheduled for May 16th 2009.
