The Jayo Foundation is a 501c3 not for profit organization and project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE). SEE, is a network of socially conscious and progressive 501c3 organizations. As we strive toward our goal of reaching more and more children each and every year the Jayo Foundation is able to capitalize on the incredible resources provided by working together with other like minded groups that are a part of the SEE program. SEE's board of directors add a great degree of practiced vision and practical application to our day to day operations and are a wonderful adjunct to the Jayo Foundation's Volleyball Helping Kids Council (VHKC).
The foundation was the vision of Founder and Executive Director Jason Olive who, in 2002, created the Jayo Foundation to fulfill a three-fold mission:
• To create a philanthropic outlet for people who love the sport of Beach Volleyball.
• To raise financial support for worthy charitable causes which improve the lives of children in the areas of health and education.
• To encourage and empower children to seek higher education.
