Our Mission

The J.Jill Compassion Fund was created to support and empower women to move forward faster and establish a better life for themselves, their children and their families.

Our Impact

Last year, 58,200 women, their children and their families were served by Compassion Fund grantees.

Success Stories Spotlight

Rosie’s Place

Based in Boston, MA, Rosie’s Place provides a safe and secure environment for low-income and homeless women to maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.

“My mom suffered from untreated bipolar disorder for more than 40 years. Rosie’s Place gave my mom dignity, lifted her up and helped her get back on her feet and see value in herself and her life. I am incredibly grateful that she somehow found Rosie’s Place.”

Women Who Weld

Before joining Women Who Weld, an organization based in Detroit, MI, a single mother was employed as a part-time pizza delivery driver earning inconsistent hourly wages with no opportunity for growth. After completing the Intensive Welding Training Program, she secured a full-time job with benefits. She’s applied to and is waiting for acceptance into a union apprenticeship training program, where she has the opportunity to make a six-figure income annually. She is doing well in her new career and is excited about the future!
