Philanthropic 50: Evan and Cindy Jones

by Editorial

When it comes to their philanthropy, these Joneses would be hard to keep up with. Evan, founder of jVen Capital, a company that invests in biotech research, is a board member of the Children’s National Health System and of the Children’s Research Institute.The Joneses funded a professorship in Pediatric Clinic Pharmacology at Children’s Hospital. In 2016 after serving on the board for 10 years, Cindy became president of the board of trustees of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, an institution she has actively supported for many years, frequently acting as a chairperson for the museum’s glittering annual gala. During her term as president, the museum’s events and galas have been sold out and brought in more money than in the museum’s 31 year history. She has brought in a new crowd of supporters and helped to revive attendance. In addition, Cindy serves on the Foundation Board of Children’s National Health System, the Women’s Board of the American Heart Association, the Advisory Board of the Washington Ballet, and the Women’s Committee of the Washington National Opera. Every year the Joneses support many other causes including Refugees International and Knock Out Abuse Against Women.
