Who We Are...

Changing Lives...
Honoring a Legacy

​​Jonathan "Jo-Nathan" Simpkins was an Electrical Engineering student at South Carolina State University when his life was tragically taken on September 18, 1998.  "Jo-Nathan" lived a life committed to excellence and to honor his legacy, our family created the Jo-Nathan Foundation to provide access to life-changing and positive  experiences and programs for other youth.  

Our Mission

The mission of the Jo-Nathan Foundation is to invest in the lives of young people. Our efforts focus on aiding young people in reaching their highest potential by hosting camps/events, providing opportunities to attend summer camps, and other educational activities via tuition or fee sponsorship.
