Types of Funds
|Jim Winston and his late wife, Mary, have been generous citizens of Jacksonville for decades. Although they have a private family foundation, their involvement with The Community Foundation led them to establish the Burgman Winston Youth Orchestra Scholarship Fund which supports the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra. They also endowed the Winston Family YMCA Campership through The Community Foundation.
