Donate to the Operation Shoestring Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation for Mississippi.

For Good. Forever Endowment Challenge

The Community Foundation will match all donations to the Operation Shoestring Endowment Fund up to $150,000.

Operation Shoestring provides year-round academic, social and emotional support to elementary, middle and high school children in central Jackson while supporting and providing resources to their families. The aim is to empower the children and families that Operation Shoestring serves to create their own success, and that of their community, so we can all rise together.

"The endowment challenge from the Community Foundation for Mississippi couldn't have come at a better time for Operation Shoestring after completion of our successful Rise to the Future 50th Anniversary Capital Campaign. This partnership will challenge us to create a long-needed endowment fund to ensure our financial stability, to continue developing innovative and effective afterschool and summer programming that more clearly reflects our organizational values, and help maintain our renovated state-of-the-art facilities while ensuring that we grow new donor support and public visibility. In short, this partnership will ensure that we "rise together" in meeting the needs of our community." – Robert Langford, Executive Director
