Sincerest thanks to everyone who came in support of The Jones Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala, and those who have been involved over the years! Every bit as much, we sincerely appreciate all of the volunteers who rolled up their sleeves and worked hard to make this event exceptional and effective. Together as team, we are fighting hard against HIV/Aids and making a real difference in our community.
Thaddeus Jones will be participating in the annual AIDS Run and Walk Chicago at Soldier Field on Sunday, September 23.
His participation continues a long relationship between AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Jones, and the Jones Foundation.
“As someone who has personal experience with how HIV and AIDS can impact individuals, families, and communities, I understand how important it is to not only provide services and resources for people but to continue to create awareness and foster understanding,” said Jones.
Under the leadership of Saprina Jones, the Jones Foundation is committed to improving health outcomes in underserved and minority communities.
The foundation works in conjunction with organizations like AIDS Foundation of Chicago to create and support programs addressing HIV/AIDS and to help provide essential resources and support services to at risk communities.
This is Saprina Jones. On Sunday, August 12th, 2018, the Jones Foundation and the Chicago White Sox are teaming up to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and provide community members the opportunity to witness Chicago White Sox Baseball.
Please consider being a home run sponsor at $5,000 for this event. The Chicago White Sox have donated a suite box, parking passes and food for this game with the Chicago White Sox v the Kansas City Royals at U.S. Cellular Field.

The Jones Foundation—dedicated to investing in youth from underserved communities and providing them with the tools needed to succeed—and Democratic State Representative Thaddeus Jones will accompany 150 children from Ford Heights to Wrigley Field on May 2 for the Cubs games versus the Colorado Rockies.
“Providing entertainment and cultural experiences for the children in the communities we serve is a critical part of the mission of the Jones Foundation,” said Saprina Jones, Acting President and CEO of the foundation.
Over the past decade the Jones Foundation has provided grants to more than 250 families in the communities it serves, additionally, the foundation provides food—including an annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway—to families in need, and provides assistance for children from underserved communities to allow them to attend math and science camp.
“Nearly half of the residents of Ford Heights live below the poverty line,” said Jones. “It is in communities like this that we can make a great impact by providing opportunities and experiences for children that they would otherwise not be exposed to. We rely on partnerships with organizations like the Chicago Cubs, who share our commitment.”
