Mission: The jackson foundation is a non-profit organization conceived with the conviction that educational motivation and learning involvement are the keys to our society's future. In furtherance of such conviction, the jackson foundation organizes and operates educational classes in music, art, drama, dance, multimedia production, computer technology, computer programming, engineering, and animation. Through these classes, the jackson foundation is able to provide students of all ages with unprecedented access to creative learning programs and interactive environments that stimulate, strengthen, and secure success, as well as serve as a national model for the development of educational programs.
Programs: Educational classes - the jackson foundation's primary function (as measured by both expenses and devotion of resources) is providing educational classes in music, art, drama, dance, multimedia production, computer technology, computer programming, engineering, and animation. Through its use of the renaissance center, a community-based learning facility that the jackson foundation donated to freed-hardeman university (a section 501(c)(3) organization) in 2013, the jackson foundation offers year-round classes in a facility with a classroom capacity in excess of 1,110 students. In addition, the jackson foundation organizes and operates classes in other areas of the renaissance center, including a 450 seat performing arts theater in which drama students are given hands-on training and experience, and sound recording and television production studios. Classes are generally semester-based with progress throughout the year, although some classes are for shorter periods. Students of some of the classes receive college credit upon completion. The jackson foundation engages a faculty from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to teach these classes.
