The Jubitz Family Foundation was established in 2001 following the sale of DAT Services, a division of Jubitz Corporation, in the belief that community giving should continue at a level equal to or greater than was done historically by DAT Services. Initial funding came from Al and Nancy Jubitz and their three daughters, Elizabeth, Katherine and Sarah. The Foundation is independent of and therefore not affiliated with Jubitz Corporation.
The Jubitz Family Foundation reflects a strong multi-generational commitment to community service and philanthropy. This commitment was exemplified by the founders’ father and grandfather, Monroe A. Jubitz, Sr. Al Jubitz continued his father’s tradition first at DAT and Jubitz Corporation and now through the Jubitz Family Foundation with his children. The goal of the Jubitz Family Foundation is to sustain or exceed the level of community support that was established at the corporate level. The founders believe that thoughtful giving to outstanding organizations contribute significantly to stronger communities.
