The Jenny Jones Foundation was established in 2005 as a means to provide assistance to those in need. Primary areas of focus are education, women’s health, and improving communities throughout the country.
The first foundation started by Jenny Jones was the Image Foundation. In 1992, Jenny went public with the numerous problems she was having with breast implants. This prompted thousand of women to also come forward, concerned about the health risks of their implants. Jenny established The Image Foundation as a resource for women seeking information about implants and support with body image issues.
In 2000, Jenny donated a mobile mammography motor coach to Cook County Hospital. The coach provides mammograms to underserved women and promotes breast cancer awareness at local health fairs and festivals.
Jenny also funded her own scholarship program for disadvantaged students and continually made private donations to Chicago area schools during the twelve years her show taped in Chicago.
In 1997 Jenny's autobiography, "Jenny Jones: My Story" was published with 100% of her proceeds going to breast cancer research. In 2006, her cookbook, Look Good, Feel Great was published and again, Jenny is donating 100% of her profits to breast cancer research at City of Hope.
In 2008, Jenny established "Jenny's Heroes," a program where, through The Jenny Jones Foundation, she gave almost 2 million dollars of her own money to 100 individuals all across the country who used it to make a difference in their local communities.
Jenny’s donations, combined with the Heroes’ efforts, continue to benefit hundreds of thousands of people every day.
