Jackson & Lisa Ruth Flagg


In 2019, Lisa Ruth Flagg passed away of breast cancer after an eight year fight. The Ruth Fund is a nonprofit organization that honors her spirit by investing your collective donations towards breast cancer research. Founded by Lisa’s son, Jackson Flagg, The Ruth Fund hopes to give others the opportunities that Lisa did not have.  Through strategic investments, the money you donate will work harder and longer to find a cure. 

Supporting Research Over the Long Term

Your donation is invested in stocks, and the resulting cash dividends are contributed annually to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

In Memory Of Lisa

Lisa's family meant everything to her. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011, she prioritized fighting the disease and spending time with her children, leaving her promising career behind. Despite undergoing three brain surgeries and traveling across the country for treatments, Lisa lived life to the fullest. In the time she had left, she focused on creating lasting memories and never allowed cancer to hinder her goals. Her strength, both physically and emotionally, amazed those who were unaware of her battle with brain tumors. Lisa brought joy to those around her, and her legacy as a courageous cancer fighter will be remembered forever.

About Jackson 

My name is Jackson Flagg, and I am the portfolio manager and founder of The Ruth Fund. As a senior at Design Tech High School, I have always had a passion for investing. I have further pursued this interest by leading my school's financial literacy club, taking classes at my local college, and conducting research for my stock portfolio. I created The Ruth Fund because breast cancer is still taking the lives of women, just like my mom. I want to honor her fight by using my passion for finance to help fund breast cancer research. I plan to manage The Ruth Fund for many years so that, one day, we can find a cure.
