The Deacon Jones Foundation was founded in 1997. It was created with a mission to develop leaders in disadvantaged areas, accomplished people who understand their commitment to the communities from which they come, and have the tools and the desire to return to give back of their knowledge; to help those less fortunate; to help stem the cycle of inner-city strife and continuous depreciation of neighborhoods; and to be positive role models for others to emulate.
Today, the Deacon Jones Foundation is proudly embarking upon a new endeavor to fulfill its mission and Deacon’s dream. The Deacon Jones Foundation is providing an educational program centered on the arts in cooperation with local high schools. Students at all levels of expertise, who have an interest in art, are encouraged to apply for the program where they can learn about art and explore their individual talents. The Deacon Jones Foundation has launched an art program featuring the sale of museum-quality limited edition NFL fine art that will assist in funding the program and awarding scholarships for higher education to qualified students.
The sale of these fine art collectibles benefits both buyers, who will treasure the ownership of dynamic top-quality sports art, and the inner-city youth served by the outreach program funded by each purchase.
