Through the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation Fellowship Program and Community Fund, we develop emerging leaders and innovative solutions working to impact our focus areas. We provide the opportunities, tools, and support to cultivate growth where it is needed most.
Launched in the summer of 2015, the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation develops and invests in JKHF Fellows seeking to work on our focus areas. We believe that the JKHF Fellow is the spark of change our communities need. We believe when paired with the right opportunity, coupled with the support and curriculum provided by JKHF, Fellows will push forward progress and impact the issues that matter most across North Carolina.
The Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation supports emerging ideas and solutions that may come from its three core programs. Through seed funding, collaborative support, key connections, and volunteer commitments the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation seeks to help new ideas launch and scale to be grant ready for area funders.
