The Vestcor Family Foundation
One of Vestcor’s founding principles is our commitment to helping others through charitable activities. It is with this principle that we began the Vestcor Family Foundation in 1995. We have donated over $800,000 to local charities, including the American Heart Association, ExcelinEd, K9s for Warriors, North Florida School, St. Jude Hospital, The Miami Foundation – Give Kids a Chance, Tiger Academy, UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
We donate our charitable dollars where we believe they will be most beneficial. The end result is that we are able to help ensure the success of non-profit organizations that are critical to the quality of life we all enjoy.
Jacksonville Classical Academy
In 2019, Vestcor, with the support of the Vestcor Family Foundation, developed the Jacksonville Classical Academy, a tuition-free public charter school located near downtown Jacksonville. Jacksonville Classical Academy opened in August of 2020 with kindergarten through 6th grade and grades will be added each year to reach K-12. Jacksonville Classical Academy has been supported through the early stages of startup by the Barney Charter School Initiative of Hillsdale College.
