This morning at 10a.m. The Jones Trust announced the official close of a two-year Endowment Campaign for The Jones Center. A recent generous pledge made by the J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family helped put the organization over the $30 million goal. The Jones Trust board made the official announcement of the campaign’s successful close at a press conference in The Jones Center’s lobby. The ceremony included special remarks by CEO/President Ed Clifford and Jones Trust board member Archie Schaffer III.
According to Ed Clifford, “The Jones Center is so pleased with the show of support by major donors throughout the Northwest Arkansas region including the Walton Family Foundation, Endeavor, Tyson Family Foundation, George Family, Walker Charitable Foundation, Shaw Family, J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family and many others! The Jones Trust board and staff have worked very hard to expand our regional Quality of Life programs and services, and we are delighted to receive this important endorsement.”
We want to congratulate The Jones Center on a successful campaign and thank the organization for its continued support to the community of Northwest Arkansas.
