Causes We Care About.

The mission of the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation is to preserve and interpret the historic home of poet Laura (Riding) Jackson and promote literary programs that nurture a passion for the written word. A primary mission is to preserve the 1910 homestead of Laura (Riding) Jackson both as an example of environmentally sensitive Florida architecture and as a valued emblem of her significant contributions made in a life devoted to language and literature.

Laura (Riding) Jackson was a devoted mentor of young writers and an avid advocate of literary arts. In keeping with her spirit, the Foundation with the help of generous partners sponsors annual writing workshops, as well as literary and historical programs and events.
