“"Gamechangers Laboratory" Established for Cutting-Edge Food Leaders to Accelerate New Solutions”

[Expand/Collapse]

Donation from Giving Pledge philanthropist-entrepreneur Ryan D. "Jume" Jumonville inaugurates food access initiative from Winrock’s Wallace Center

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – March 6, 2019 – An extraordinary gift from philanthropist-entrepreneur Ryan D. “Jume” Jumonville of United Networks of America has established the “Gamechangers Laboratory,” a groundbreaking initiative from the Wallace Center at Winrock International.

Through collaborations and convenings, the Gamechangers Laboratory will catalyze breakthrough ideas, strategies and innovations in community-based food systems as they expand access to good food. The initiative will leverage the power of the Food Systems Leadership Network (FSLN), a fast-growing group of almost 2,000 food systems leaders from all 50 states supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

“This is a critical time for food security in America,” Jumonville said. “I believe deeply in the power of community and the importance of food access for all people. I am proud to support the creation of the Gamechangers Laboratory as part of my Giving Pledge and to encourage other donors to support this incredibly innovative effort.”

In this inaugural year, the Gamechangers Laboratory will award grants and technical support to community-based leaders, organizations and multidisciplinary teams working to address intractable obstacles to sustainable, community-based food systems. The initiative will provide participants with space, time and financial resources to design, incubate and pilot innovative approaches to advance food systems change.

“We are deeply honored to announce this incredible gift from Mr. Jumonville,” said Rodney Ferguson, CEO of Winrock International. “His passion for creating a world where no child is hungry aligns perfectly with the missions of Winrock International and the Wallace Center. We are humbled by his willingness to break new ground with us and grateful to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for their continued support of the Food Systems Leadership Network, on which this effort will flourish.”

“We recognize that despite strong collective efforts, there are still great barriers to solving the underlying drivers of food insecurity, inequity and poverty,” said program officer Susan Schempf. “Just as innovative high-tech startup leaders need time to examine the systems they seek to shift, consider the bigger picture, and get creative in their problem-solving, so too do community food systems leaders. The Gamechangers Lab will provide that opportunity.”

Warrick Dunn Home For The Holidays


“Donation To Provide More Than 100 Homes To Single Mothers”

[Expand/Collapse]

RYAN D. "JUME" JUMONVILLE MAKES RECORD DONATION TO WARRICK DUNN CHARITIES

July 29, 2019 – Warrick Dunn Charities, Inc. (WDC), which is recognized across the country for its Home for the Holidays program, is proud to announce a multi-million dollar gift that will make 100 families across the United States first-time homeowners. The donation from Ryan D. "Jume" Jumonville is the largest gift in the 22 year history of the non-profit. To date, WDC has worked with 170 families to provide them with a first-time, permanent home.

"This gift is transformational," Dunn said. "The generosity shown will not only impact the families that move into these homes, but their future generations. But more than that, it demonstrates how businesses can change and improve the conditions of a community."

Dunn's Homes for the Holidays program, established in 1997, was inspired by the tragic death of his mother, Betty Smothers, a Louisiana police officer killed by armed robbers during an extra-duty security job. After the death of his mother, Dunn became the main provider for his five younger siblings. Dunn went on to become a celebrated running back in the NFL and is today a minority stakeholder in the Atlanta Falcons organization.

Dunn and Jumonville initially became friends while playing football together at Catholic High School in Baton Rouge, LA in the early 1990s. "I’ve supported Warrick’s charitable efforts for many years now and have witnessed the great impact he is making in the lives of these families," Jumonville said. "It is an honor to team up with Warrick to move these deserving mothers and their children out of poverty and into a stable home life."

Homes for the Holidays currently operates in Atlanta, Baton Rouge, Jacksonville, Tampa/St. Pete, Tallahassee, New Orleans, Dallas/Houston, Nashville, Newark, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Augusta and Detroit. The gift from Jumonville will allow more families to gain entry to their own homes and expand the program to previously unserved communities.

About Warrick Dunn Charities:
Warrick Dunn Charities, Inc. is committed to improving lives through innovative programming inspired by our founder’s life journey. Since 1997, the Homes for the Holidays program has helped 170 families and 459 children and dependents achieve first-time home ownership.
