The Melvin Jones Fellowship recognizes donations of $1,000.  It is the backbone of LCIF, providing seventy percent of the Foundation's revenue.  A recognition of humanitarian work, an MJF is an honor presented to those who donate $1,000 to LCIF or to people for whom a donation was made by others.  Melvin Jones Fellows receive an attractive lapel pin, a plaque and a congratulatory letter.
