stated purpose is ...to provide educational opportunities for personal
growth and development based on the writings, teachings, and insights of Carl
Gustav Jung and various post-Jungians. We offer educational and
experiential programs to those who are seeking meaning, integration and
wholeness. These programs emphasize Jung’s individuation process and the
relationship of this journey to the community and the world.

The Bollingen Fund was named after the "confession of faith in
stone," as Jung called his tower - the house he built for himself with
his own hands at Bollingen. Over the years, as he would begin to feel that
the house was incomplete, he would add rooms and courtyards and even an
upper story. Bollingen was always the place where Jung said he felt most
deeply himself. As you may know, a generous anonymous donation has given
JACO the opportunity to create an endowment fund. The originator of this
fund contributed generously, matching 50 percent of the money donated by
our members and friends in the community. This original phase is now over.
We are deeply grateful to our original donor, who had the foresight to plan
for JACO's continuing wellbeing, and to all who responded to the call for
donations. We still welcome donations to the Bollingen Fund, which will
help ensure JACO's continued survival over the years ahead. Your donation
is tax deductible, so you may give to JACO and know
you are helping the JACO community survive well into the 21st century.
Please clearly mark donations to the Bollingen Fund and send them to JACO,
59 West Third Avenue, Columbus, OH 43201.
