Building a Better Community

One act of kindness at a time.

A message from Jo:

A little about me, the Foundation, and how you can become a partner.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky surrounded by some really good people. My family was a huge part of helping me become who I am, but the number of people in the Louisville area who supported me along the way were just as important.

From my first coach at Lyndon Recreation, to my Ballard High School community, I was always surrounded by people who worked hard, who gave their time and who were kind. When I was just 15 years old, I knew I wanted to be a professional baseball player. It was also during that time, that I began to travel nationally playing ball. When I was playing baseball in different cities and states, I began to really appreciate the values I grew up with. Now as a professional baseball player, I have the platform to promote these values.

There are three ways you can be a part of the foundation. First, you can be a volunteer. If you sign up as a Volunteer, you may be asked to work on projects that are sponsored by JAF or volunteer your time if JAF works with other charitable organizations. Second, you can submit a project idea and become a Project Leader. I don’t have all the answers and we are relying on you to help us come up with creative ways to help our community. Finally, you can be a Donor. We are a 501C and all of your donations will be tax exempt and welcomed.

So please take some time and check out our website. I would appreciate you being a part of the Jo Adell Foundation.
