About The Cactus Jack Foundation

The Cactus Jack Foundation‘s mission is to empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long term success. The foundation believes the youth should not be prevented from attaining their lifetime goal and is committed to extending educational opportunities to all, regardless of their circumstances to achieve their dreams.

About The Mr. October Foundation

The Mr. October Foundation is a non-profit public benefit corporation, founded by Reginald M. Jackson in 1997 with the mission of improving educational opportunities for underserved youth. The foundation was honored in 2020 in New York City with the prestigious Helix Award. Its primary mission is to provide realistic and reachable goals for underserved com­munities, where children have not shown a predisposition toward academic achievement, even though they are capable of doing so. Only through education can we empower children to lead more productive lives. Neither poverty nor illiteracy indicates a lack of intellect. The new economy thrives with the perspectives brought by our Nation’s motivated youth, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is the future of the new economy. Early exposure to STEM is where the motivation begins.
