John William Jackson Fund, ICF
The John William Jackson Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation (JWJF) is a tribute to the enthusiasm, passion and enterprise that John Jackson exhibited in his life. JWJF supports the education of deserving nursing students who understand the importance of being a caring, compassionate and patient/family-centered nurse. This year, nine exemplary nursing students received JWJF scholarships.
In celebration of the funds 20th anniversary in 2020, Bill “Action” and Jackie Jackson, the fund’s co-founders and John William Jackson’s parents, launched the Northwest Health Science Scholarship Initiative (NWHSSI). The NWHSSI further honors the memory of their son and responds to a great and timely need within society, by expanding JWJF’s financial support of nursing programs in the Northwest.
The scholarships are funded by the iYERP recycling program, private donors, and an ICF endowed fund. Action Jackson and the JWJF board are the driving force behind the scholarships and the School of Nursing is inspired by their dedication to the education of Bronco Nurses.
