ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS of Steven's athletic career is that it has given him an opportunity to give back to the communities that have supported him throughout his life, and discover new ones where he can make a difference.
THE STEVEN JACKSON FOUNDATION
The Steven Jackson Foundation, Steven's personal community service organization, is dedicated to promoting strong educational values and healthy living among today’s youth. Initatives have included donating $1,000 to the Foundation for every touchdown he scored in 2006, and hosting a three-day charity event to benefit his foundation and the Easter Seals of Southern Nevada. The event includes a youth football camp, a celebrity golf tournament, and a charity auction and fashion show.
Steve and the Foundation continue to contribute actively to a number of causes, including the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and the NFL's childhood health program, NFL Play 60.
