Bridging the gap

in educational opportunities available to underserved young men and women

complete support

We're dedicated to completely supporting a select group of promising young scholars.

Through the Jordan Scholars Program, we build lifelong relationships. Family is everything to us. We view our scholars as family and we look out for them, guide them and help raise them as if they were our own.

120+ lives changed

JFF has funded four-year high school tuitions for more than 120 deserving students, all of whom have gone on to attend first-rate colleges and universities across the country.


Through need-based scholarships, JFF is committed to helping young men and women, primarily from minority communities. We provide opportunities for academic, athletic, and social enrichment to these underserved youth.

high school, college and beyond...

The Jordan Family Foundation’s mission revolves around helping underserved children thrive in life—not only as students, but also as productive members of their communities and society at large. This support continues after high school, throughout college and into adulthood, seeking to help them develop the self-confidence, character, work ethic, and life skills that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.

paying it forward

Once a Jordan Scholar, always a Jordan Scholar.

JFF provides professional networking opportunities for all scholars, past and present. We encourage all young men and women who have been through our program to give back. We connect the past and present through our mentoring program, creating close relationships between alumni and current scholars. Our mentoring program has helped build a vast network of resources in virtually all professions, including doctors, lawyers, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, professional athletes and artists.


John W. Jordan III, President

After a nearly two-decade career as a scout and executive in the NFL, Jordan has shifted into a leadership position with JFF, overseeing all activities and initiatives related to the Foundation and Scholars Program. He has spent the past nine years overseeing the Los Angeles Rams Draft process and evaluating both the physical talent and character of thousands of college football players. His exceptional eye for identifying young talent and passion for helping the less fortunate make him an ideal fit to lead JFF into the future.
