The main goals of the Foundation were: to arrange for the permanent housing of Jacobine Jones' works that have been left to the Foundation on settlement of the estate; to establish a comprehensive catalogue of the artisit's works, both architectural and individual; to promote a commemorative exhibition; to raise funds for the above activities, as well as for a publication on the life and work of Jacobine Jones, and for providing support for elderly artisits to enable them to carry on their work, in the interests of art in Canada.

The Directors of the Foundation were: Angela Butler and Charlotte Vidal, both of whom were nieces of Jacobine Jones; Michael Butler, a great-nephew of the artist; Peter Stokes, a restoration architect; Geoffrey Brooks, accountant.

The Foundation ceased operation in 1999.
