The Jackson Purchase Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, nongovernmental organization (NGO) working in Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Marshall, and McCracken counties in western Kentucky. We work with local citizens and community leaders to develop ideas, build partnerships, find funding, and implement projects that improve the quality of life for citizens of the Jackson Purchase region. With assistance from our diverse and productive partnerships, we bring together people and organizations, including private landowners, conservation groups, local, state and federal governments, nonprofits and the private sector, to implement projects that promote healthy communities, healthy environments and sustainable economic growth. With our approach, we hope to empower local citizens and communities to make dreams become a reality.


Our Vision:
Sustainable Development in Harmony with our Environment.

Our Mission:
We are dedicated to the wise use of our natural and human resources, joining with others to strengthen our community through measurable and sustainable means for the benefit of all.
