The JAMS Foundation donates $100,000 to Divided Community Project

June 10, 2020 | College

The JAMS Foundation has generously donated $100,000 to The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law Divided Community Project, which provides public officials and community leaders with resources and technical support to plan for potential civil unrest before it occurs and to respond constructively to violent social conflict that does erupt.

The donation comes less than a year after the foundation provided the Divided Community Project with a $300,000 grant, which was expected to fund the project through 2021. Over the last five years, the JAMS Foundation has contributed $1 million to the project.

“As a leading provider of dispute resolution services, it has always been our mission to bring people together,” the JAMS Foundation said in a statement. “As an example, The JAMS Foundation is the leading non-profit in providing financial and other resources for conflict prevention and resolution. They continue to support organizations that specifically address the deep divisions within our country and some of the resulting consequences as we have seen during these past weeks.”
