The Richard O. Jacobson Foundation was created in 1976 by distinguished businessman and philanthropist Richard "Dick" Orrin Jacobson. For more than 40 years, the foundation has focused its grant activities in the following areas: education, including primary, secondary and higher education; youth development; medical research. Dick was known for his great sense of humor and fascinating stories, his love of people and his enormous generosity. Dick will be remembered for his entrepreneurial spirit and his unwavering philanthropic leadership. He had a tremendous positive impact on Pinellas County by donating millions to several organizations including the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Clearwater for Youth, Pinellas Education Foundation, Tampa Bay Charities and many more. Dick Jacobson passed away peacefully on April 1st, 2016 in his home in Clearwater, Florida. On November 30th, we will honor his legacy and celebrate his generosity in the hopes that we can follow in his footsteps and change the lives of those in need.
