About the Foundation

The Helen Kimberly Jones Charitable Trust was established in 1993 under the Last Will and Testament of Helen Kimberly Jones. Ms. Jones adored animals, and she created the trust to support organizations committed to preventing animal cruelty in Buncombe County, North Carolina. The trust was created in memory of Ms. Jones' dogs Trixie, Mike, Kimmy, Penny, Bitsy and Taffy.
