This foundation was established in memory of Jake Vinyard.   Jake was an avid baseball player and talented drummer.   Jake had a vision of going to Culinary school.  #JVStrong has been adopted as our motivational phrase and we simply want to turn our tragedy into a positive for others.   We are a Pay It Forward Organization, who want to help others in need.  The Jake Vinyard Foundation is a Non For Profit 501(c)(3) organization, formally established in 2016.
