The Jackson Exchange Club was chartered August 24, 1924. We are America’s Service Club. From our organization’s earliest days, Exchange Clubs have been unselfishly serving their communities and improving the quality of life. The diverse array of Exchange-sponsored programs and projects has made a considerable impact on America, enhancing the lives of countless men, women and children across the nation.
Charles A. Berkey is credited with the founding of this great organization in 1911. At his suggestion, the name “Exchange” was selected because the group wanted to exchange ideas and information with like-minded individuals about how to better serve their communities.
Exchange, America’s Service Club, is a group of men and women working together to make our communities better places to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and its national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
Our four Pillars of Service are; Child Abuse Prevention, Americanism, Community Service and Youth Projects. We are fully committed to support the Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, in Jackson and all of West Tennessee.
