The John Rex Endowment's mission is to strengthen organizations that center racial equity and justice to improve the social emotional health of children living in Wake County. Our desired impact is that all children and their families are safe, healthy, and living to their full potential.

As advocates of children's health and well-being, we at the Endowment offer our thoughts to those who have been affected by the pandemic. We believe that to stop the transmission of COVID-19, vaccines are one of the most effective tools. Therefore, all the Endowment staff is fully vaccinated. See our policy statement.
