Growing up, David Jones’ goal was to play professional basketball. With the support of his parents, his dream became a reality. After years of being able to play professional basketball in Europe and do what he loved to do, Jones quickly realized, however, that this same opportunity was not always easily available to others.
This led Jones to create, in 2008, the Shooting For Success Foundation, a 501c. The Foundation aims to serve today’s youth, athletes and non-athletes alike, by providing opportunities for personal and athletic growth through outreach and service projects, SFS financial support, and basketball training and competition abroad.
Since establishing the Shooting For Success Foundation, Jones has watched a multitude of kids and athletes become compassionate leaders. He has seen youth who struggle in school become extraordinary students. Jones has witnessed athletes return from playing ball overseas with a whole new outlook on the world around them.
Organizations SFS supports through service, outreach, and donations:
- Exhibition games and camps in China, Vietnam, and throughout Europe.
Shooting For Success Foundation holds regular fundraisers led by its club team players and their families. It also has a year-round fundraising opportunity established through Amazon Smile. A small percentage of purchases made online at www.smile.amazon.com/ch/27-2985162 will benefit the SFS Foundation.
SFS Foundation welcomes corporate sponsorship opportunities and donations.
These are instrumental in allowing the SFS Foundation to support its community, travel teams, and players in need. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
