Ms. Jackson brings with her over fifteen years of non-profit management and social services experience and is passionate about improving the quality of life for children and families. Ms. Jackson has had the privilege of impacting youth in Philadelphia, PA and North Carolina through organizations such as the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania, Council for Children’s Rights, the YMCA of Greater Charlotte, The New Teacher Project (TNTP), and most recently served as the Executive Director of the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Gaston County.

Ms. Jackson is a native of Atlanta, GA and graduated from Emory University with a dual Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies. Additionally, she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice with her Master of Social Work diploma and began her career as a school-based Social Worker in Philadelphia.

Currently Ms. Jackson oversees the day-to-day operations, fiscal management, staffing, and philanthropic endeavors of Warrick Dunn Charities, and is charged with working closely with the Board of Directors to fulfill the mission of our organization and executing Mr. Dunn’s vision of improving lives, instilling hope, and inspiring communities.

Paige Whalen
Program Coordinator
Paige Whalen is a native of Virginia and a graduate of Radford University with a BS degree in Child Development. She began her career working with children (birth-eight) and their families to improve their social-emotional and educational outcomes in Head Start and early learning programs. After moving to Tulsa, OK, Paige worked to build the successful Quality Enhancement Initiative which focused on supporting early childhood programs to provide exemplary care for children and families.

When Paige joined the Community Service Council (CSC) team, she worked with local and national schools to build a whole child, whole school, whole community approach known as Community Schools. While at CSC, Paige also developed the Power of Families Project, a program that helps to empower families to be advocates for their children, both in early childhood and schools.

In 2018, Paige and her family moved to Atlanta where she began working with GivingPoint, a program which empowers youth to take action for social good. This involved implementing Social Innovators Academy which brings volunteer industry experts together with students to assist in learning about non-profit entrepreneurship and guide them to develop their own passion project.

Over the past 20 years, Paige has worked in the non-profit sector promoting the value of families and children as essential members of their communities. Paige has led committees to improve quality in programs, created successful partnerships among diverse community leaders and led coalitions involving multiple agencies working to benefit the client. Additionally, Paige has served on local and national boards, including tenure as the past President of the statewide Early Childhood Association of Oklahoma and Propel Partners in Wellness (Pittsburgh, PA) Advisory Board.

Paige is most passionate about helping ethnically and culturally diverse families (especially refugees and immigrants) recognize their potential and worth to their community. Paige also feels it is important to educate others about the challenges of diverse families so that supporting them comes from a place of trust, respect, and authenticity.

When not working, Paige volunteers in her community and at a local school. She and her family enjoy watching almost all sports but are proudest when attending collegiate soccer matches to watch her son and high school basketball games to cheer on her daughter.
