Every year, James Publishing gives a portion of its revenues to its private charitable foundation. This foundation supports education and health projects for needy youth in the United States and less developed countries.
Partial engineering scholarships at UC Irvine.
We collaborated with UCI's Department of Engineering to identify high-achieving engineering students with substantial financial need. We provided six of those students with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $8,000 per year. This gap funding helped students reduce their borrowings and focus on research and academics.
Community college scholarships.
We provide three local community college students with mentoring, community college tuition, fees and books for one year.
Homes and support for street kids in the Phillipines.
We are teaming up with Arms of Love to build additional homes and take in more orphaned, abandoned, and abused children in developing countries. Our first steps are to finish and furnish a home in Bohol, Phillipines and sponsor one child. Next we hope to build a home in Brazil or Nicaragua and support some children there.
The children to the right are residents of one of the homes in Bohol, one of the poorest and most underdeveloped areas of the Philippines archipelago.
Full college scholarships in California.
We paid for tuition, books, and living expenses, and guidance to five inner-city students who were accepted to good universities, but could not afford to attend. Our scholarship recipients attended UC Santa Barbara, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.
We also found sponsors for six additional needy scholars. Thanks to generous providers of full scholarships, these students attended UC Berkeley, USC, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Cal State Los Angeles, and Cal Poly Pomona.
Clean water in Indonesia.
We provided money for the Sumba Foundation to dig water wells and lay water pipe for the village of Paholo on the island of Sumba. Our well and pipe provide clean water for 145 students and 800 villagers.
A clean water source is important during the Indonesian monsoon months of December through March. The springs become polluted with runoff, causing dangerous outbreaks of diarrhea that kill many young children. Our wells will eliminate this cause of death.
New elementary school in Afghanistan.
We provided the startup money and most of the first several years' budget for the Helping Hands School in Kabul. Helping Hands began as an elementary and trade school for orphans and widows, and at its peak educated and fed over 200 students..
