The Jusuf Nurkić Foundation
Jusuf Nurkić established the Foundation in 2020 to positively impact the lives of youth, women, and the community in his home country of Bosnia. The Foundation also operates in the community of Portland, where Jusuf plays for the Trailblazers.
In the last year, the Foundation has sent life-saving PPE kits to hospitals struggling with COVID-19, donated $40,000 to the largest hospital near Jusuf’s hometown to rebuild the roof, built homes for three single mothers and families, and sent 5,000 food packages benefitting 12,000 people to Bosnia. The Foundation is also sending mammogram machines and an x-ray machine to hospitals in Bosnia and building a community basketball court for the Bosnian community in Portland.
The Jusuf Nurkic Foundation is a fiscally-sponsored project of The Giving Back Fund Inc., Tax ID 04-3367888, a not-for-profit corporation with federal tax-exempt status from the IRS under section 501(c)(3).
