THE J.JILL compassion fund

compassion connects us all

Founded in 2002, the J.Jill Compassion Fund is committed to providing support to community-based organizations that help disadvantaged and homeless women become self-sufficient. We’re honored to give to local organizations nationwide that help women in need regain their independence through programs that focus on education, life skills and job training, and safe, transitional and affordable housing. Together, we can help women and their families rebuild their lives.

A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT & CEO

At J.Jill, we believe that compassion connects us all.

As a company that’s 94% women, we feel a unique responsibility to help homeless and disadvantaged women in our local communities regain their self-sufficiency and be empowered through access to education, life skills and job training. Since its founding in 2002, the J.Jill Compassion Fund (a donor-advised fund of the Boston Foundation) has donated more than $14 million to over 80 organizations across the country—and you’ve helped make this possible.

When you purchase one of our exclusive Compassion Fund styles, 100% of the net proceeds go to women in need. You enable us to make a strong impact on the lives of so many women and children and, for that, I thank you.

Below are links that let you shop our Compassion Fund products or make a contribution directly to the J.Jill Compassion Fund.

Together we can make a positive difference.

donation requests

We’re constantly exploring new ways to evolve the J.Jill Compassion Fund to better fulfill its mission. With a desire to deepen our impact and relationships with a focused group of organizations, our grant process targets specific geographic areas and potential partners. As a result, the J.Jill Compassion Fund grants are determined through an invitation-only request for proposal (RFP) process. Consequently, we will not be able to respond to unsolicited grant requests.

For more information, please email compassion.fund@jjill.com.

The J.Jill Compassion Fund provides product donations through Good360, a nonprofit organization that distributes products to local organizations that are helping women in need.

Please note, to be eligible for J.Jill donations from Good360, your organization must have a 501(c)(3) status and offer programs to help women and their families.
