The SKJAJA Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
SKJAJA Fund: Funny Name. Great Mission.
Children in lower income homes have a new opportunity to participate in social and educational enrichment activities, with help from the SKJAJA Fund, a new 501(c)(3) organization in Chapel Hill.
The fund was created in September 2008 by Eric and Charlotte White to not only provide funding for children who might not be able to afford such activities, but also to teach an important lesson about citizenship. Each child who receives funding is asked to “pay it forward,” or do a good deed for someone else without expecting anything in return.
The SKJAJA Fund is an all-volunteer organization that depends on the support of the community. Because of the generosity of many individuals and businesses it was able to begin fulfilling its mission in 2009. The following businesses have been instrumental in helping the SKJAJA Fund achieve their goals.
