‘A great tradition of giving, sharing and caring’

Mr. and Mrs. Jones, parents of Melandee Jones | Charles W. Thomas Jr., photographer

“The humility, sincerity and genuine spirit of African American philanthropy are what move me the most. There is not a sense of needing to advertise or make political plays—it’s a sincere desire to help another human being, and that is the true meaning of philanthropy. Our community is great at this and has a great tradition of giving, sharing and caring.”

— Melandee Jones, member of New Generation of African American Philanthropists with a tribute story about her parents featured in the book Giving Back
