Who Are the “Friends”?

The Friends of JPPM believes that educating our community about our local history, heritage and environment will provide a framework from which they can better understand the world and create a better future.
State and local taxes provide up to 73% of funding for JPPM. The remaining 27%, including Friends’ member contributions and dues, allow them to offer programs and events that make a difference in the lives of local children and adults.
