She turned her energies and life experiences toward the exploration of some of the nation’s best philanthropic programs and institutions, strengthening her dedication to form a foundation that will have a lasting impact on future generations.

The mission of the Sherry Jackson Foundation is to enhance the educational success, employment opportunities and emotional health of children and young adults who face economic, environmental or emotional challenges, through an array of programs that create opportunities to enable wise life choices.
