Jackson Academy Fundraising

In order to begin a fundraising campaign at Jackson Academy, a fundraising request must be submitted to Tim McWilliams, Director of Development, with the JA Development Committee. The request must be reviewed and approved before a fundraising campaign begins. The Development Committee meets three times per year, so requests must be submitted one month in advance of needing an answer to allow the Committee time to review and make a decision.
