In December 2021, John Rex Endowment's Board of Directors adopted a refreshed mission statement to bring clarity to who we are, what we do, and who we aspire to be. 

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.  

 Evolving the Endowment’s 2018 Strategic Roadmap, our refreshed mission guides funding and advocacy strategies that align with our vision and commitment to the community.
