Jamhour Alumni, US Inc is an non profit alumni association organized in 2004 under New York State laws. It is a 501 c(3) non profit, non political organization, founded by a group of Jamhour Alumni (Anciens de Jamhour) desiring to assist needy students attending their alma mater, ‘College Notre Dame de Jamhour’, in their home country of Lebanon. Since inception, and through 2017, above $2 million have been raised thanks to the generous contribution of its sponsors.
‘College Notre Dame de Jamhour’, is run by the jesuit order of the Catholic Church. Gathered funds are used to cover the tuitions of deserving students unable to meet tuition expenses; more than 800 scholarships have been provided through 2017. Special fund raising by either a particular ‘class’ or specific individuals have also targeted the creation of modern Computer Science Laboratories.
The membership in the Jamhour Alumni, US Inc is a privilege extended only to former students from the ‘College Notre Dame de Jamhour’, its predecessor ‘The College of Saint Joseph’ and all membership holding alumni.
