Making a difference through financial assistance.

Our mission

Provide effective financial assistance efficiently.


An emergency is something serious, unexpected, and requires immediate action. For individuals and families experiencing a financial emergency, the delivery of financial assistance needs to be efficient in order for it to be effective. At Jenny’s Gift, we understand this, which is why I’ve made it our mission to provide effective financial assistance efficiently, thereby averting any unnecessary suffering as a result of financial uncertainty.

To achieve this, Jenny’s Gift has simplified and streamlined the process for requesting and receiving financial assistance. Through a simple online form, you’ll be able to submit a request for financial assistance in as little as five minutes, and by utilizing the internet and mobile banking applications, Jenny’s Gift has the capability of providing a financial lifeline within 24 hours.

I founded Jenny’s Gift because a woman named Jenny gave me a gift that changed the trajectory of my life, forever. I don’t know if we’ll have the same impact on you as she did on me, but I figured the very least I could do is try. Jenny’s gift to me was unexpected and immediate, and ensured I would survive the tumult that was my life at that time, for one more day, week, and possibly month. However, what was most important about Jenny’s gift to me was the everlasting effect it had on how I viewed the world and the people in it. Her act of unsolicited generosity inspired me to give what I could, be it time, attention or resources, when I could, whether that be today or tomorrow. One day, when the time and place is right, you will too.

The surging ranks of America’s ultra poor.

The number of U.S. residents who are struggling to survive on just $2 a day has more than doubled since 1996, placing 1.5 million households and 3 million children in this desperate economic situation.

Expand the circle of prosperity for individuals.


I am committed to closing the revolving door of poverty for low income families by providing emergency financial assistance when they need it most.

At Jenny’s Gift, our hope is to expand the circle of prosperity for individuals. To that end, we designed Jenny’s Gift to catch people before falling into financial catastrophe, and for those individuals and families stuck just below the poverty line, lifting them up.

My goal is to reduce the stigma of asking for help. Requesting financial assistance shouldn’t include an unnecessarily long and complex application process. I believe people when they say they need help, which is why Jenny’s Gift requires the individual provide only basic demographic information and details unique to their current financial emergency to do so.

Expanding the circle of prosperity for individuals also means strengthening local communities. To achieve this, Jenny’s Gift asks it’s participants to commit to the Gift of Service as a means for reentry into our program. We encourage individuals to give back to their communities in the manner that best suits them, their schedule and their abilities. It can be something small and immediate, like helping a family member or friend today, or something grand and long-term, like becoming a volunteer for a local nonprofit organization tomorrow. Beyond that, the what and when is for them to decide, because at Jenny’s Gift, it’s not what or how much you give that matters, only that giving matters to you!
