About The Horace A. Moses Society

The Horace A. Moses Society was founded in 2004 as Junior Achievement of North Florida's elite giving club to recognize donors who generously invested in our community's young people through JA over a five-year period.
 
One hundred years ago, Moses co-founded Junior Achievement with Theodore N. Vail, President of AT&T. Moses and his colleagues believed that JA was neither a charity nor a welfare program, but an educational activity – specifically, business education – to be designed and operated by
business, educational, and civic leaders.
 
Along with pledging money, he built the Achievement Hall in Springfield, Massachusetts to serve as a central institution for all JA activities. Only months before his death, he led a major fund drive by pledging $100,000 ($1.45 million in 2019 dollars) and, with the Board of Directors, determined that autonomous and independent franchises would be created in cities or counties where conditions warranted. The Board agreed that each JA area
would manage its own programs and be supported by corporations, individuals and foundations. Further, they stipulated that JA Inc. and its franchised areas would not seek more than 10% of their funds from local, state, and Federal Government. These policies prevail to this day.
 
Junior Achievement of North Florida was chartered in 1963 and is proud to recognize the 2019 Horace Moses Society donors who empower us to achieve Horaces Moses' vision and legacy in North Florida.
 
The 2019 Horace A. Moses Society recognizes cumulative investments of $5,000 or more between 2014 and 2018. Junior Achievement of North Florida's impact would not be possible without the financial support of the community. We appreciate all contributions and extend our sincerest gratitude to the Horace Moses Society donors for their generosity.
