The Jacques A. Clermont Memorial, Inc. (JACMF) is a charitable, non-profit organization established in the memory of Dr. Jacques A. Clermont, whose life ended tragically in a car accident in 1995.

Due to the political instability in Haiti in the late 1960s, Dr. Jacques Clermont and his wife settled in the United States  where he continued to pursue his medical career, and began his residency at  Harlem Hospital / Columbia University. Dr. Clermont and his wife remained active in helping their fellow Haitians by providing free education and medical care for poor Haitians in the Diaspora, sending supplies and medicine back to Haiti and launching numerous fund raising initiatives for disadvantaged Haitians.

After his sudden death, Dr. Clermont’s family founded the JACMF and opened a center
for homeless children in his hometown of Jacmel in 2003.

The Foundation is managed by a Board based in Columbia, MD with supporting operations in New York,
Alabama and Los Angeles. The Board is responsible for fund-raising and general oversight of the Center's operation. The Executive Director is responsible for day-to-day operation of the Center in Jacmel; she is assisted by a local Advisory Board.
