President- Jill Dobbs, Central Trust





In 2009, the HCJ Foundation was formed to offer the community another option to invest in the funding of historic preservation. From monetary gifts and bequests through estate planning, these funds, as managed by a professional Board of Trustees, will grow and be available for special historic preservation projects while supporting the work of Historic City of Jefferson, Inc. The HCJ Foundation, Inc. is both a tax-exempt organization and a public charity, classified as a 501 (c) 3.  The Trustees continue to focus on a strategic plan and an investment policy that enables the Foundation to raise and retain funds, create a revolving loan program, acquire endangered historic properties, and manage dedicated funds pursuant to donor directives. The HCJ Foundation, Inc. is your opportunity to leave a lasting community gift in the preservation of its irreplaceable heritage. For more information, email
