ABOUT THE JENSEN PROJECT

Dedicated to ending sexual violence

The Jensen Project is a public charity, supporting non-profits and individuals through strategic grants, resources, and holistic help.

As a rape survivor, our founder Janet Jensen discovered that local organizations are doing the hard work to help survivors of sexual violence, but face similar obstacles.

Funding is just a fraction of their needs. Organizations need to know what works and doesn’t. They need the opportunity to expand their leadership skills and find a network of like-minded professionals to get support with staffing, cash flow, fundraising, operations, day-to-day questions, and more.

They need resources and a strategic partner to support them in their work.

The Jensen Project fills this need. We believe we’re stronger together. A national, unified front will help us win the fight against sexual violence.
