Mission

The Jason Ackerman Foundation focuses on improving the lives of youth who face and/or have survived challenging circumstances through educational support and entertaining experiences…
Because Of Jason.

We are driven to support a group so often pushed aside or sadly overlooked and most times misunderstood ~ adolescents & young adults ages 15 to 25.

We encourage those who continue to fight or have survived health related issues or circumstances beyond their control and welcome them into our foundation family.

We strive every day to make life easier and the future more promising for those willing to fight along with us for a common goal.

Why? Because of Jason…

He knew firsthand how tough the teen years are.
His academic goals were a priority.
His heart was always open to help.
His family understood the great need to feel independent.
His love for his sister would never want her to feel left behind.

We at the foundation are all inspired to do great good in our communities… Because of Jason.
We invite you to join us or find a wonderful someone who has touched your life and inspires you.
