Honoring Jim Crown

Jim Crown leans forward listening to a presentation from social impact partners

As both a family and a philanthropy, we are heartbroken by the sudden passing of Jim Crown. Jim was a brilliant leader of utmost integrity and heart who, throughout his life, was dedicated to social impact. His humility, work ethic, and genuine care for others can be seen through his personal philanthropy as well as his work with Crown Family Philanthropies.

Our deep commitment to collective philanthropic work—which we have pursued for over 75 years and across four generations—will only grow stronger as we reflect on Jim’s life and legacy. CFP’s priorities remain steadfast, and we will continue our work, together with our communities and partners, to advance just and lasting social impact for generations to come.
