“The Jim Dempsey Foundation is dedicated to continuing his legacy of hope, kindness and positive development. Our Mission is to help others spread love, joy, education and care to those affected by illness.”

Hello Supporters of the JDF,

With the help and support of friends and families, the JDF has been able to offer very small scholarships through the Doc Dempsey Scholarship and Sheryll Dempsey Textbook Funds, but our other aspirational programs have yet to find their way off the ground.   Therefore, the board has agreed to suspend all programs with the exception of the Doc Dempsey Scholarship and focus our energy into raising funds for this one program.  Once the Doc Dempsey Scholarship has been sustained, we will then focus energy into the other programs.  Thank you again to everyone who has supported the JDF – we rely on you to keep Doc’s legacy alive!  Here is to a healthy and bright 2015 for all of us.  Happy Valentine’s Day!
