RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA (January 25, 2022) –The Jessi Combs Foundation (JCF) is honored to announce their first corporate partnership with Warn Industries, one of Jessi’s longest running partners. Warn, in addition to making a direct financial commitment to help grow the JCF Scholarship program, is also contributing significant logistical and in-kind resources to The Jessi Combs Foundation for 2022. In total $70,000 worth of scholarships have been awarded to 14 women since the foundation’s inception in 2019 and with Warn’s support the JCF hopes to make greater contributions in 2022.
“To have Warn commit to support the JCF is an absolute win for all and we know Jessi is smiling down, giddy with joy” said Kelly Combs, Jessi’s brother and JCF Board member. “Warn was one of Jessi’s biggest and longest running partners, and as they did with her, they have quietly stood behind us since day one. We’re thrilled to have them on board as our first official corporate sponsor!”
“The Warn team is proud to support the Jessi Combs Foundation. Working closely with Jessi for a number of years, she had a profound effect on many members of our team. We believe in the work the foundation is doing and are honored to be part of it” said Jake Petersen, Warn’s VP of Product & Marketing.
The mission of The Jessi Combs Foundation is to Educate, Inspire, and Empower the next generation of trailblazing and stereotype-breaking women. A guiding principle to this mission is a simple question “What Would Jessi Do?” The long-term vision for the Jessi Combs Foundation is to execute this mission via three pillars:
- Educate: Trades were important to Jessi, the very vehicle that provided so many opportunities to her. JCF will distribute individual scholarships and in-kind partner donations to educational institutions and learning centers to continually be a driving force behind the next generation of women in trades.
- Inspire: This will come to life via in-house projects as the foundation looks to continually set new bars and use our voice to shine light and recognition on those whose achievements, talents and accomplishments inspire others.
- Empower: Grants and Sponsorships will be the primary tools to support those women with a dream of achieving their own level of greatness and that aligns with the barrier smashing attitude Jessi embodied.
The Jessi Combs Foundation is a recognized 501c3. Those interested in supporting the foundation or partnering with us are encouraged to reach out directly via the contacts below or on our website. All donations raised will go to The Jessi Combs Foundation and will be used in compliance with the official purpose of the organization.
