Our Commitment

The Jo-Nathan Foundation is devoted to youth!  We partner with existing organizations that share the common goal to helping our youth to succeed!

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.
