committed to helping those in need

“Barrett-Jackson was founded on a philosophy of philanthropy when Tom Barrett and my father, Russ Jackson, hosted their first car show to raise money for the Scottsdale library and community arts center in 1967,” stated Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “More than 40 years later, our commitment to the community is stronger than ever. We understand the importance of giving back, no matter how small or large the act.”

“Each of these organizations needs our support,” added Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “We’ve made it our goal to raise as much money for both local and national foundations as possible and so far, we’ve generated more than $34 million."

They made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society.  They created Paralyzed Veterans of America, an organization dedicated to veterans service, medical research and civil rights for people with disabilities.
Today, the work continues to create an America where all veterans and people with disabilities, and their families, have everything they need to live full and productive lives.
Paralyzed Veterans national officers and our 34 chapters represent thousands of veterans in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
