A Long History of Success

Founded in 1988 by Steve Jacobson as Jacobson Consulting Applications, we have evolved into JCA: a respected nonprofit industry leader in technology services, consulting, and analytics. As our client roster has grown, so has our unwavering commitment to helping organizations find better-fitting technology to support their missions. Focused exclusively on serving nonprofits, we continue to invent, invigorate, and explore the best services and solutions to navigate today’s increasingly complex landscape.

Our Dedication to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

JCA is committed to strengthening the organizations we serve, and we believe justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) are central to organizational strength. Employees and clients should feel comfortable being their whole selves in an inclusive environment that welcomes and encourages a diversity of backgrounds, voices, and experiences. We actively seek ways to build a more equitable workplace, and embrace the individual and company-wide responsibility that this requires.
