Continuing the legacy of Deacon’s passion through art and outreach
Today, the Deacon Jones Foundation is proudly embarking upon a new endeavor to fulfill its mission, and Deacon’s, to serve youth populations who need our support. Through an exceptional arrangement with the National Football League, the Deacon Jones Foundation is launching a fine art program featuring the sale of museum-quality limited edition sports art prints.
These fine art pieces will be officially licensed by the National Football League, adding tremendous value and authenticity to each. All proceeds from the sale of these specially licensed works of art will benefit the Deacon Jones Foundation and a newly formed outreach program for inner-city youth interested in developing their own artistic talents. Information on events, programs, and opportunities for engagement in this outreach program will be announced on this site soon.
We are fortunate to be working with many world-renowned artists as we develop this new philanthropic venture: top American artists Edgar Brown, Robert Hurst, and Dave Hobrecht, just to name a few. We are also honored and grateful to the NFL for the outstanding opportunity this unique partnership provides. It will allow the Foundation an exciting and inspiring avenue for generating resources to offer the maximum possible assistance and to assure the utmost success for students and for the communities that are served.
