Jared's Fund was established by the family of Jared Zimmerman (1995-2016) to celebrate his spirit. Our mission is to challenge the stigma associated with mental illness, especially by enabling young people to lead such efforts.
Jared's Fund Youth Fellowship provides summer funding to Montclair High School students and recent alumni to pursue projects that focus on mental health. JFYF is advised by a board of Jared's friends and family, medical professionals and educators. Applications for the inaugural cohort of fellows are due by May 12, 2019.
The Jared Zimmerman Farm & Wilderness campership covers full tuition for a New Jersey native to attend this Quaker-based summer camp located in Vermont (ages 8-17).
For questions regarding applications to the JYFY, or for more information about how to support this program, please reach out to Colleen Smith, Scholarship Program Manager at the Community Foundation of New Jersey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Zimmerman-Baillargeon family.
