About Allan Jones
Foundation Project Donations This plaque at the Tri-State Exhibition Center is in recognition of Allan Jones' contribution that allowed for construction of one of the three barns on the 92,000 acre facility which hosts several major horse shows and other community events each year. This 92-acre facility located on the outskirts of Cleveland, TN, is the site of numerous horse shows, art exhibitions and community events each year. To keep the center as a viable venue for a wide variety of attractions, Allan Jones has donated $300,000 as part of a facility expansion program. The W.A. (Bill) Jones Memorial Scholarship was established at Cleveland State Community College in Cleveland, TN, by Allan Jones and his sister, Amy Jones Banks. As a civic leader, Mr. Jones was very active in the community. He was the president of the Chamber of Commerce at the time that Cleveland State received its charter. Even though Allan Jones graduated from Cleveland High School, he is equally generous when it comes to his old alma mater's chief rival, Bradley Central High School. Witness his more than $100,000 donation to Bradley's wrestling facility. The Wrestling Practice Room at Bradley High was donated by Jones in honor of his parents, W.A. (Bill) and Virginia Slaughter Jones, both graduates of the school. After visiting the center on a day trip, Jones was especially taken with the unique amphitheater there. In honor of his continuing contributions to schools in his area, Allan Jones has been named Contributor of the Year for Athletic Districts 1, 2, and 3 in the state of Tennessee. The award is given to individuals displaying the high ideals of integrity and ethics, and for the examples of citizenship and sportsmanship shown. The Greenway has proven so popular that donations from a variety of sources have extended its reach, and Allan Jones was pleased to be a co-donor to create the shady park near the Southern end of the trail. It's no secret around Cleveland and Southeast Tennessee that Allan Jones is a "tree freak. He has donated literally hundreds of trees to improve the livability of our community, as well as enhance the beauty of many public spaces and buildings. Indeed, Jones was responsible for getting Cleveland designated as an official "Tree City USA. Among the major plantings that Jones paid for are the trees lining the long driveway entrance to Bradley Central High School, the trees along picturesque Ocoee St., all the trees in the downtown area and around the Bradley County Courthouse and on historic Centenary Ave. (both areas planted in honor of his father, Bill Jones), trees at Cleveland High School dedicated to the Class of 1992 from the Class of 1972, and at both Arnold and Mayfield Elementary schools. As a major contributor to the Museum, Allan Jones and family donated a conference room named in their honor. In addition, his donation allowed for the landscaping around the museum building. » Return to Top Live TV Coverage for Prep Athletes Another way in which Allan Jones shows his support of the area's amateur athletics programs is to fund live television coverage of two important community sports events. The Tennesee High School State Championship Finals in wrestling are televised each year with funding provided by Jones. In addition, he pays to have the annual Cleveland/Bradley High football contest, not only televised, but also shown on the giant outdoor Jonesatron screen at the Village Green Town Center. » Return to Top Ben Davis High School Wrestling This Indianapolis, IN, high school-the largest township school in the U.S.-attracted Allan Jones' attention with its outstanding wrestling program. To show his support of this conservation effort, Jones has donated $100,000 to the campaign. he non-profit Jackson Hole Land Trust has worked diligently with land owners since 1980 to preserve wildlife habitats and undeveloped land in the Jackson Hole area. » Return to Top United Way of Bradley County As a $100,000 annual donor to the community's United Way campaign, Allan Jones has distinguished himself as a member of the select deToqueville Society, an elite group of donors whose giving far surpasses the norm. Through his donation to Rulon Gardner of the Sunkist Wrestling Club, Allan Jones enabled Gardner's parents to travel to the Olympics to watch their son compete. And compete he did: Gardner won the Gold Medal in wrestling at the 2000 games held in Sydney, Australia. This Wyoming farm boy had traveled half-way around the world and defeated the greatest Olympic wrestler ever. His victory, called "the Miracle on the Mat," was witnessed in person by his proud parents, thanks to the generosity of Allan Jones. Each year, Allan Jones gives generously to this worthy fund that provides money for needy children to Christmas shop. Allan Jones' $10,000 donation helps make this a most successful fundraiser. » Return to Top Cleveland High School Solar Bike Project To jump-start the Career and Technical Education Department at Cleveland High School, Allan Jones donated $5,000 to the Project "Lead the Way" program, a pre-engineering course introduced three years ago. Allan Jones' interest in and support of amateur wrestling has continued long beyond his own years as a competitor on the mat. Jones realizes the necessity of good coaches and how much they need to be nurtured. Accordingly, Jones has provided generous donations to this national high school and collegiate coaching body in the form of monies for a vital leadership course and for a weight training program. » Return to Top University of Mississippi Pi Beta Phi Sorority House When Allan Jones learned of the urgent need for maintenance and repair work on the historic Pi Beta Phi Sorority house at Ole Miss, he stepped up with a $25,000 gift to the group. As a historic preservationist and an admirer of the beautiful campus in Oxford, MS, Jones understood the necessity of providing funds so that this house that has meant so much to so many, could continue to operate Allan Jones' donation to this new center will help it realize its goals of advancing the study of market economics and representative democracies. The center honors Hastert and his career in public life, notably as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Spartans of Manchester College in North Manchester, IN, are fortunate to have captured the interest of wrestling enthusiast Allan Jones. He rewarded the college's wrestling program with a donation that will help them continue to build on an already fine tradition of success, which included eight straight Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championships, plus titles in 2002-04 and again in 2007. » Return to Top Cleveland Middle School Not only do the area high schools benefit from Allan Jones' generosity, but Cleveland Middle School was also fortunate to receive donations. Both the CMS football and baseball teams were recipients of Jones' kindness, with the baseball team receiving a new ball field. And to nurture the next generation of fine wrestlers, Jones also provided some $12,000 to the Cleveland Middle School's wrestling program. » Return to Top Walker Valley Wrestling Once again, Allan Jones put away his favoritism and provided generous funding to a wrestling program at another area high school that was not his alma mater. Jones has donated a considerable amount to the Mustangs wrestling program in an effort to keep it competitive with other schools in the area.


InterMat Wrestling - George W. Bush truck auction to benefit Gable Museum

intermatwrestle.com [cached]

The truck, which had been used by Bush at his Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas after leaving the White House, was purchased by Allan Jones, the founder and CEO of Check Into Cash at the 2013 Palm Beach Barrett-Jackson auction with proceeds from that sale to benefit the National Guard Youth Foundation.
Jones explained that after he purchased the truck in 2013, the Bush signature on the passenger side of the instrument panel was accidentally washed off during routine maintenance. When Jones realized what had happened, he asked the President if he would sign it again so that truck could be resold for charity. "President Bush graciously agreed to help us and the rest is history," Jones said. Jones, a long-time supporter of amateur wrestling, has designated that all the proceeds from the April 8 sale of the truck will go to two organizations that serve to grow youth wrestling: the Higher Calling Wrestling Club in Tennessee ... and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. "Dan Gable is a wrestling legend whose name is famous all over the world," said Jones. "Now, thanks to Janie and Allan Jones and the new purchaser, this special truck will help countless young boys and girls participating in many wrestling programs," said Gable.

About Allan Jones
Foundation Project Donations Allan Jones W. Allan Jones, CEO and Founder of Check Into Cash, Inc. W. Allan Jones founded Check Into Cash in his hometown of Cleveland, TN, in 1993. Since then, the company has grown into the third largest payday lending company in the nation and become a billion-dollar-a-year enterprise. Prior to founding Check Into Cash, he worked for nearly 25 years in his family's Credit Bureau business before selling it in 1998. Mr. Jones started in business at the age of 20 while a student at Middle Tennessee State University. He worked six-day work weeks and long hours to learn and grow the business started by his father, W.A. (Bill) Jones, Jr. Eventually, Credit Bureau Services of Cleveland grew to include nearly a dozen offices from Atlanta to Memphis. It was the largest credit collection agency in the state of Tennessee when it was sold. In 1993, Mr. Jones established Check Into Cash, which made "payday" advances (small, short-term loans) to walk-in customers. The terms were up to two weeks on $200 checks for fees ranging from $15 to $18. The business proved popular with customers and profitable for Mr. Jones, and had grown to more than 700 Check Into Cash stores by late 2002. Currently, the company has 1,100 locations nationwide. Not only did his idea bloom into a successful venture, but his company has consistently led the way in setting industry standards and best practices for other responsible payday lenders nationwide. In addition to serving as Chairman and CEO of Check Into Cash, Inc., Mr. Jones is also Chairman of Jones Management Services, Inc, which provides management and administrative services to his many different businesses. Another of his ventures, Jones Properties, LLC, owns numerous historic buildings in downtown Cleveland. He was instrumental in helping restore and revitalize the city's downtown business district and beautifying the city's streets by planting dozens of trees to enhance the area's environmental health. Mr. Jones serves on a number of community boards and in several capacities with the University of Tennessee, both at Knoxville and Chattanooga. He was awarded the city Cleveland's highest business honor, the M.C. Headrick Free Enterprise Award, given by the Chamber of Commerce. He is well known in southeast Tennessee for historic preservation, a passion for the sport of wrestling, and his love and appreciation of trees.
