The JDJ Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit providing financial assistance and support to the sick and underprivileged in our community.
We're dedicated to partnering with other nonprofits — such as hospitals, schools, religious organizations and soup kitchens — to assist in their missions of helping those in need.
In addition, we provide members with unique volunteer opportunities that offer beneficial experiences to advance professional development.
Who We Are
Our History: The late Joseph and Donna Marie Blauvelt established the JDJ Charitable Foundation in 2003. Their intention was to create a broad-based charitable foundation that would help those in their surrounding community in many different ways. The JDJ Charitable Foundation made its first charitable donation in 2011 and has been generously giving ever since.
Who We Are Today: Our Advisory Committee and volunteer base are dedicated to continuing the legacy of Joseph and Donna Marie. We are a diverse team from the tri-state area focused on helping others:
- James Blauvelt, President
Allyson Blauvelt, Vice President
Joseph Gucciardo, Treasurer
Jeffrey Watkins, Director of Community Engagement
What Defines Us: Unlike other nonprofits, the JDJ Charitable Foundation has a broad reach and provides aid to a wide variety of charities and causes.
From financing playgrounds at schools and serving the homeless at soup kitchens to participating in Cycle for Survival, we pride ourselves on lending a hand to those in need whenever we can.
We seek to honor the loving and generous spirits of Joseph and Donna Marie Blauvelt by continuing the work they started and by being a force for good in our community.
