Name Usage

If you are referring to HJF, we ask that you follow this guide for the sake of consistency.

Full name: The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc.
Second reference: HJF (When using "HJF" please do not insert "the" before the abbreviation.)

e.g. The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF) was authorized by Congress. HJF is a non-profit organization. HJF provides a variety of services.

When referring to HJF, please use the full name on first mention (The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine). In formal documents, include ", Inc." In marketing and similar copy, the ", Inc." is not necessary.

Please do not use other shortened versions of our name, such as "The Jackson Foundation" or "Jackson." There is more than one Henry M. Jackson Foundation, so we must distinguish ourselves clearly. The other foundation, which has no affiliation with HJF, deals with environmental, international affairs, public services and human rights issues.

We have registered HJF as our official nickname in large part to distinguish us from the other Henry M. Jackson Foundation, but also to give ourselves a single, distinct and memorable abbreviation. For this reason, please always use "HJF," never "HMJF," "HMJFAMM," "the Foundation," or any other abbreviation.
