The Time is Now
The success of the Legacy Project centers on unique oral histories, but with the passage of time, it is inevitable that some of these stories will become lost or obscured so we need to act now.  Before we can start construction, funding is urgently needed so that plans can be developed for exhibits and for converting the house into the A. Quinn Jones Museum. Once the plans are complete, construction will follow.

Meeting the Challenge
Imagine school children awakening to their potential as they hear how “Prof” Jones experienced setbacks and triumphs on the way toward realizing his goals. Picture alumni of Lincoln High School sharing stories of their early years and of their adult journeys that followed. Your financial contribution can bring these past experiences to life. Please help the Legacy Project preserve the memory and accomplishments of “Prof” Jones and the people he influenced today.

Note: The full amount of your contribution may be eligible for an income tax charitable contribution deduction. Donations will be deposited into a special fund established exclusively for this project. Legacy and Heritage Level gifts are payable over no more than three years.
