The John Rex Endowment supports an environment where all children and families in greater Wake County live healthy lives. Guided by the belief that all children should reach their full potential, the John Rex Endowment works with the community to support the social emotional behavioral health and well-being of children.

In response to the pandemic, we at the Endowment offer our thoughts to those who have been affected by the virus. We believe that to stop the pandemic, vaccines are one of the most effective tools. Therefore, all the Endowment staff is fully vaccinated. Any visitor to our office who is not fully vaccinated must wear a face covering when inside the Endowment office. People who are not fully vaccinated should stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.  See our policy statement.
