Joseph E. and Marjorie B. Jones Foundation Grants

Our mission is to improve the lives of all people, but especially residents of the Washington D.C. metropolitan region. We seek to accomplish this goal by providing grants to support projects and initiatives in the fields of education, health and human services.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that civic duty is not a choice; it is an important responsibility of living in a vibrant and progressive community.
  • We believe that all individuals have inherent worth and dignity.
  • We believe that given the right opportunities and resources, all people can improve their lives regardless of race, sex, religion or current social-economic condition.
  • We believe that seemingly complex and insurmountable civic problems can be solved using cooperation, respect, hope and the combinations of physical, spiritual and financial resources.
  • We believe that we must work as partners with other businesses and individuals in supporting the charitable institutions through which the Jones Foundation assists residents of Washington D.C. and its surrounding communities.

Our Goals

  • We will strive to build partnerships that help us fulfill our mission of making a difference in the Metropolitan Washington D.C. and surrounding areas.
  • We will preserve our credibility by remaining independent and objective.
  • We vow that although our financial resources are limited, we will aid organizations that inspire, uplift and motivate. With our financial help, our grant awardees will foster progression of the individual and therefore, the community at large.
  • We will seek to support organizations that create strong and sustainable bonds of trust between those living in the communities we support, and the infra-structure of that community.
