In one of its more recent contributions to the Arlington community, the Arlington Youth Foundation donated $1 million, in concurrence with a $1 million donation from the NFL, to support the build of The Salvation Army Arlington’s Youth Education Town (YET) scheduled to open in fall 2013. The YET will provide educational, athletic and arts programs and countless other services to hundreds of Arlington youth and their families.
The Gene and Jerry Jones Family Arlington Youth Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the youth of the City of Arlington by funding programs and facilities dedicated to sports, recreation and education while working to foster the growth and empowerment of the community through matching grants.
The Gene and Jerry Jones Family Arlington Youth Foundation awards project and general support grants to recognized IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that focus their community development on youth and recreation in the City of Arlington. These nonprofit organizations must demonstrate an ability to secure current and future funds matching the awarded grant amount through a variety of community support and sources. Partnerships are allowed between 501(c)3 organizations and other organized groups with out IRS non-profit status, however, the 501(c)3 must serve as the fiscal agent in the partnership and all funds will go directly to the 501(c)(3) with the expectation that the funds will be used solely for the tax exempt purpose, and that 501(c)3 will be responsible for any reporting obligation on the use of the funds.
