We are a 501(c)(3) organization that strives to achieve our goals by nurturing and encouraging the development of children through education and the arts - tools to make them more complete individuals. 


More particularly, the Foundation seeks to enrich and enhance an otherwise general education by introducing students to the

life-changing power of the Arts, while promoting business, entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering and math education.

The Jackie Ward Foundation has made

fantastic performances possible for

The Learning Center since 2011! 

By staying engaged with our local youth, we are investing in the future of our region's community life.

The overall goal of the Jackie Ward Foundation is to ignite and galvanize

those who will eventually take on roles as community leaders and trailblazers. 


The Jackie Ward Foundation!
