Through the generous donations to Friends of Jones, we are able to support programming, events and grants that benefit our entire Jones community and help support the “whole student” experience.

Spring Online Auction!

The Online Auction will begin on Monday, April 29 and continue through Monday, May 6.

We can’t do it without you!



- Give out the Friends of Jones donation form to places you already go such as your health club, salon, clothing stores, favorite restaurants, nail salon, etc. and ask them if they could donate.

- Support a local business and the Jones Community at the same time by buying a gift card from the business to donate to FOJ to be used for the auction and incentives for other community building events.

- Are you a season ticket holder, own a boat or have a vacation home? Donate tickets to an event, a night out on the water or a weekend getaway.

- Own a business? Donate an item or a gift card, every item donated supports fundraising and community building for our school!

- Share your access to unique experiences!  Donate the experience and make a friend by hosting the winning bidder!

- BID! Find your favorite items when the Spring Auction launches on April 29 and make a bid!  All proceeds go to support Friends of Jones and the Jones Community!

We are looking for Auction Ambassadors to help canvass their neighborhood businesses. It's an easy and flexible way to help with the Online Auction. Questions? Please contact:

Appreciated stock purchased over a year ago may be donated and a tax deduction is taken for the full market value of the gifted stock as of the date of the gift (up to 30% of adjusted gross income) and because the stock is donated rather than sold, there is no capital gains tax. (Please consult your tax advisor). If you would like to donate stocks/securities from a brokerage account, please initiate a direct wire transfer with your broker to Friends of Jones. Our account info is Ameritrade DTC: 0188, Account Name: Friends of Jones (account number available upon request). Please have your broker indicate your name and acknowledgment information. Please notify FOJ at immediately after the transfer by emailing your name, address, telephone number, stock name with the CUSIP code and number of shares transferred so we know who to thank for the donation.

You may donate to Friends of Jones from your Charitable Gift Fund by contacting the fund and asking to designate FOJ as a donation recipient or log in to your Giving Account and enter FOJ (Tax ID #36-4417670).
