Society Opportunities

JACF's 1961 Society is a giving society named in honor of the year that Junior Achievement of Central Florida was established. The 1961 Society is a group of individuals who share a deep passion and commitment to JACF's vision to ensure that all graduating students in Central Florida are financially literate, ready for the workforce and grounded in leadership and entrepreneurial principles.

Members of the 1961 Society give $1,961 (or more) annually as an individual gift. These gifts have an immediate, meaningful impact on the Central Florida students who participate in a JA program as well as the classroom volunteers and teachers who partner with us.

Members who notify Junior Achievement of Central Florida of their intent to be members during the 2017-2018 year should notify us no later than March 31, 2018.

The Free Enterprise Society recognizes individuals who demonstrate outstanding support in helping Junior Achievement of Central Florida inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.  The Free Enterprise Society encourages new supporters to become involved with Junior Achievement and existing supporters to increase their current levels of individual contribution.  Members of the Free Enterprise Society perpetuate the free enterprise system by helping JA advance work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy to youth around the world.

As a member of the Free Enterprise Society you will be recognized by JA USA's President and CEO, be included in the JA USA annual publication, The Registry and in JA USA's Annual Report.

Membership is provided to individuals and families who have made gifts of $10,000 or more between July 1 and June 30 each year either directly or through a private family foundation.  Gifts can be cash or other assets valued at $10,000 or more.  Qualifying gifts cannot be from companies, corporations, or public foundations and matching gifts from companies do not qualify in meeting the required level for recognition.

Some faithful friends of Junior Achievement plan to support the organization beyond their lifetimes.  By including Junior Achievement of Central Florida in their estate planning, these supporters have taken deliberate steps to ensure Junior Achievement of Central Florida's future.

Membership in the Heritage Society is open to all individuals who name Junior Achievement of Central Florida as a beneficiary in their will, charitable gift annuity, charitable trust, or life insurance policy.  To recognize and honor these ardent supporters, JA Worldwide has established the Junior Achievement Heritage Society. Please consider a legacy gift by including Junior Achievement as a beneficiary.
