The Salisbury Jaycees Foundation is the nonprofit affiliate organization of the Salisbury Jaycees and coordinates the fundraising for causes that benefit the lives and opportunities of the youth of Salisbury and the surrounding area.

Early each December we work alongside our fellow chapter members of the Salisbury Jaycees to escort approximately 200 underprivileged children at our Annual Children’s Christmas Shopping Tour.  We provide each child with an opportunity to purchase gifts for themselves and their families.  It is heartwarming to witness the number of children who buy gifts for others, instead of themselves, demonstrating the true spirit of giving.

The generous donations and the support of many community organizations, volunteers, businesses and individuals make this event possible.  For your generosity, we cannot thank you enough.

The Jaycee Creed

We Believe...

That faith in God gives meaning 
and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man
transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won
by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of
laws rather than of men;

That earth's great treasure
lies in human personality; 

And that service to humanity
is the best work of life.
