Celebrating the life & legacy of Reuben M. Jackson

Donation protected
March 20th 2024
Hello. My name is Jenae Michelle. I am Reuben Jackson's partner. This "go fund me" exists for one reason. That is to honor the life and legacy of the extraordinary Reuben Jackson. One wonderful way to do that is by donating money to the University of the District Columbia scholarship fund for students interested in poetry and/or jazz.
If the community raises over $40,000 there will be a scholarship named in his honor. This is a way to extend his generous spirit and allow him to continue to help others. The more we contribute, the more generous the scholarship(s) can be. You can honor Reuben in lots of ways, notice the clouds (I mean, really check them out), support someone else's dream, really listen, be kind to animals and so many other things. Wouldn't this be a lovely way to honor him? Love, Jenae.

a few details:
The funds will go into a bank account that I opened for this purpose and I will update this listing when I donate. Go fund me will charge 2.9% plus 30 cents transaction fee. As this money will be given to an institution not an individual there should not be any taxes. This will be the only expense. Thanks.
