Hans and Cay Jacobsen Foundation
Since 1990, the Hans and Cay Jacobsen Charitable Foundation has been dedicated to helping disadvantaged, underprivileged, and at-risk children receive greater access to education, healthcare, and recreational programs, and enjoy opportunities for cultural and personal enrichment. The Foundation is also committed to supporting civic causes primarily affecting the communities of Lake County and Sumter County in Central Florida.
Created by Cay Jacobsen to help fulfill the dreams she shared with her husband Hans, the Foundation is overseen by a Board of Trustees whose commitment is to find and fund those programs and organizations promoting the Jacobsen’s passion and vision.
What We Do
We match up deserving charities with grants that give them the funds to help at risk and in need youth.
These guidelines are provided to assist those charitable organizations considering applying for grants from the Jacobsen Foundation.
Cay began the Hans and Cay Jacobsen Foundation in 1988 in honor of her late husband to promote their shared charitable causes, including providing financial and educational support to orphaned and handicapped children.
