About JB Dondolo, Inc.

JB Dondolo, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit which primarily exists to provide charitable services to impoverished communities worldwide. The company focuses on those markets that cannot afford the simple, basic necessities. The organization was founded by Dondolo’s children in November, 2012. It is named after their late father, J. B. Dondolo, an orphan, farmer, and humanitarian advocate whose values and principles on giving continue to inspire his children, friends, and families across the world. J. B. Dondolo played a critical role in the fight against poverty. Dondolo’s children saw the need to form a non-profit to honor their father so his legacy of good deeds would continue. The charity is interested in promoting, developing, and completing projects and programs that have been started but left incomplete or imagined but not started for a variety of reasons.
