Tackling Tough Problems.

Fostering Effective Leadership. 

We tackle critical policy issues while engaging a new generation of civic leaders, guided by Senator Jackson’s hallmark inquisitiveness, vision, pragmatism, honesty, and determination.

The Henry M. Jackson Foundation fosters effective leadership on key issues of national and global importance, particularly:

  • Climate change, energy, and natural resources
  • Human rights
  • International affairs education
  • Public service

Through our work, we promote integrity, civility, fact-based decisionmaking, and bipartisanship.

The Henry M Jackson Foundation was founded in 1983 to continue the unfinished work of the late Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson in the areas in which he played a key leadership role: international affairs education, human rights, environment and natural resources management, and public service. Through its grantmaking and strategic initiatives, the Foundation seeks to make a lasting impact and perpetuate the Jackson legacy for the benefit of future generations.
