The Cousin Jack Music Foundation was founded in 2003 by the Franklin family as a memorial to "Cousin" Jack Franklin, who dedicated many years of his life to promoting music and the arts to the youth of Mariposa.
The mission of the Cousin Jack Music Foundation is to continue the work of Cousin Jack by "promoting passion for music in youth".
Since 2004 the Cousin Jack Music Foundation has awarded a music scholarship to a Mariposa High School Senior. This has been made possible by contributions from the Franklin family, as well as generous donations by the community.Besides the scholarship, other goals of the Cousin Jack Music Foundation include:
- Organize community events and concerts
- Partner with other arts related agencies and groups within Mariposa
- Provide a no-cost musical instrument lending library for school music students
- Collaborate with and provide financial aid to local schools to encourage the inclusion of music instruction on a regular basis to all students
