The Jones Foundation assists families in need to cover a child’s medical, dental, or vision expenses.
Before seeking any medical treatment, a family must first contact the Jones Foundation office to complete an application to determine the needs of the family, the financial situation, the number of family members, other resources, etc. In emergency cases, it may not be possible to have a completed application prior to the emergency. In such cases, a member or representative of the family must contact the office within 15 working days of the initial treatment. The Jones Foundation reviews each application to determine whether qualifications and eligibility for financial assistance have been met. The Jones Foundation’s Board of Trustees, in its sole discretion, has the final decision regarding the qualification, eligibility, and the amount of financial assistance to be awarded.
