" The challenges facing rural communities are experienced locally, but they are part of broader trends that play out across our world. The Millennium Fellowship will allow me to apply that global perspective to the work that I am doing "on the ground" on behalf of rural areas like my hometown. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Page County Nonprofit Grant Hub
Led the Page County Economic Development Authority in putting together a free “grant hub” for area nonprofits. As part of that, the board has invested substantial time and money into finding grant information, which I have used to produce a regularly-updated database that is free to use for local nonprofits. I also provide free consulting and research services by request on behalf of those nonprofits.
About the Millennium Fellow
A graduate of a small rural public high school and a community college, Jack is the first person in his community to enroll at Harvard as an undergraduate (and FGLI student). He is an advocate of rural areas—a path that has led him to public office (as one of Virginia's youngest government officials). That is why he founded the Rural Leadership Initiative, an award-winning nonprofit supporting young rural leaders. Jack has been the recipient of numerous honors, such as authoring his own local news column on rural issues, working as a White House Intern, and serving in several executive positions.
