The Jones Center Endowment Fund

The endowment fund was established Dec. 14, 2012, with a $10 million donation from the Walton Family Foundation and a $10 million donation from the Care Foundation, a fund of the Endeavor Foundation. The Walton pledge included a challenge for a matching contribution of another $20 million. The Endeavor Foundation money counted as half of that with another $10 million to be raised by the Jones Center.
