The Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corporation (JREDC) is nearing the end of a successful five-year investment campaign. It’s through the generous financial contributions of our investors that JREDC is able to progress its mission to create, expand, recruit and retain job opportunities for Morgan and Scott Counties. 

Through the investor campaign, seven new investors have been added to the “family,” and current investments surpass 2022 totals by more than $16,000. Eleven continuing investors increased their investment amounts.

“As we near the end of our five-year investment campaign, I am encouraged by the continued and increased support of our current investors, as well as individuals and businesses new to our family of investors,” said Kristin Jamison, JREDC President. “Investments in JREDC allow our organization to boldly continue our work to strengthen the Jacksonville region.”

Investors’ commitment to the community facilitates attracting and retaining quality businesses and workforce. Business owners directly benefit when the economy and quality of life are elevated. Attracting new businesses and helping current businesses expand leads to more jobs, a broadened tax base and enhanced services for the benefit of the whole community.
