What is the Foundation and its Mission –

The Doug Jacobson Residents Fund is a nongovernmental organization that works in conjunction with the Douglas T.

Jacobson State Veterans Home located in Port Charlotte, FL. Its mission is to solicit, receive, manage and disburse

donations from individuals and organizations to:

Inform the general public, community and business organizations of the charitable needs of the residents at the

Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Home

Plan, direct and implement all phases of a wide range of fund raising activities.

Provide quality of life services to the residents of the Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Home.

Why Was the Foundation Established?

Veterans homes need funding to assist residents with some of their personal necessity items, which the fund believes

to be fundamental. The demand for long-term care of Southwest Florida Veterans is growing at a somewhat startling

pace? Our attractive climate, aging veteran population, and increases in longevity of the nations 9.2 million veterans

that are 65 years of age and older.  

The Doug Jacobson Residents Fund is used to keep our residents socially active. The Activities Department uses

funding for field trips, diners club, birthday club, bingo, community events, etc. This funding gives our residents the

opportunity to stay active and enjoy the many opportunities that our Port Charlotte community has to offer.
