Leaving a Legacy -- We’re honoring the life of Richard P. Jones, one of our Community Foundation family members who recently passed away at age 105. For nearly 25 years, Dick Jones spent his time between Key West and Southampton, NY. An active member of the Keys community, he and his partner, Dominique Del Monte, created the Jones-DelMonte Endowment at CFFK in 2007. Grants from the fund have supported numerous Keys nonprofits for projects in health and human services and arts and culture. A retired ad agency executive and avid golfer, gardener, and lover of classical music, Dick Jones moved to Pompano Beach, FL, in 2002, where he passed away on Sept. 5. Monies from his estate will continue to fund the Jones-DelMonte Endowment and provide generous support for the Keys for generations to come. ... See MoreSee Less
