About Us

The Clark James Foundation seeks to raise permanent funds that perpetually sustain the Good Shepherd Center and its mission to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and transition people out of homelessness.

We enable donors to make a lasting difference through gifts of endowment and planned giving guided by our community's leading estate and financial planning professionals.

All donors are encouraged to sustain their annual support of Good Shepherd Center. It is only through the combination of our annual and legacy gifts that long term resources can be provided for those in need.

Gifts of any amount may be made to the general endowment. Gifts of $25,000 or more create a named endowment.

All funds are managed by a local Board of Directors working with community investment advisors.
