About J.C. Flowers Foundation - Partners for the Last Mile
Who We Are
The J.C. Flowers Foundation works with a wide range of partners to solve critical health and social problems affecting hard to reach, or “last mile,” communities. The Foundation seeks maximum impact from its investments by partnering with other funding organizations, governments, and local, grassroots organizations with expertise and presence in communities often overlooked by traditional donors.
Areas of Operation
The Foundation focuses its efforts in two distinct areas: the cross border communities of Namibia, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and Harlem, New York. The Foundation works alongside local partners and communities in the cross border areas to implement malaria elimination programs. Simultaneously, the Foundation works closely with partners in Harlem, New York to assist formerly incarcerated men and women returning home to their communities.
How We Work
The J.C. Flowers Foundation practices partnership and supports locally identified solutions. We believe that the people who live in the communities have essential insight into how to solve their own problems. The J.C. Flowers Foundation believes that each partner brings something unique to the work and is essential to the delivery of high quality programs in the communities we serve.
The Foundation brings to the table financial, technical and operational support as well as access to resources and advocacy at national and international levels. The J.C. Flowers Foundation works directly through the Anne & Chris Flowers Foundation, a donor advised fund of National Philanthropic Trust.
