The Jordan Morgan Foundation (JMF) is a non-profit organization founded by Jordan Morgan aimed at improving the social and educational welfare of youth in the City of Detroit and State of Michigan.
JMF seeks to be a catalyst in inner-city generational change with initiatives centered on education, outreach, and sport. JMF’s mission is fueled by the values passed down to Jordan from his parents and his deep love for the State of Michigan. His mother overcame a brief period in a homeless shelter with young Jordan and built a better life for him on the principle of hard work. His father adopted him at age 13 and instilled the value of education and leadership. It is through the lenses of this upbringing that JMF will offer education, support, and encouragement to today’s youth.
