About JP Jumpers Foundation


Our mission is to provide hands-on tangible assistance for the everyday challenges of the special needs community, families, and other charitable organizations.


JP JumPers Foundation was started by Pam Mines as an Autism Walk Team in 2007 honor of son JP, 7 months after he was diagnosed with Autism. He was only 2 years old.  JP JumPers started as a team of 6 and by 2012 grew to over 130.  During that time the JumPers raised over $11,000 for the Autism Society of Central VA. In 2010, the JP JumPers created an official logo and asked the community to not only “JumP In” for Autism Awareness but for other community/volunteer projects as well (i.e. Feeding the Homeless, Voter Registration Initiatives, Walks for Breast Cancer, Down Syndrome and Diabetes, Special Olympics Volunteers; etc.).  Because of all of the “JumPing In” that was happening, Pam decided to start her own non-profit so she could give back in her own way with no restrictions because of a national organizations rules.
