The JAG Fund was originally created as a way to help our family and friends bear the burden of the loss of our son, brother and friend, Joel Anthony Gingras, Jr.

After 26 years and over $1.8 million dollars raised, The JAG Fund has become not only a continued celebration of Joel's life but a formidable non-profit organization. 

In its early stages, our primary fundraising event consisted solely of an annual "tubefloat" down the Delaware river.  It has evolved to include a golf outing and the annual black tie gala in Philadelphia.  The real force behind our fundraising success is the tremendous generosity of our long-time sponsors, the commitment of our individual fundraisers, and the willingness of new people to get involved.

We also count having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously as the ultimate tribute to a person who was always the life of the party.
