LeBlanc-Jones Builds Charity

Ruth LeBlanc-Jones, a sales associate at the New Canaan office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, is sponsoring the construction of a house on Catamount Road in Fairfield and will donate 100 percent of the profits to the Connecticut National Guard Foundation.

The Connecticut National Guard Foundation is a private nonprofit corporation organized to provide temporary financial assistance, goods and services to members of the Connecticut National Guard and Organized Militia and families who are in need. Grants have paid for the transportation, travel and housing costs of family members to visit service members being treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center for injuries received during deployment in Iraq and have helped families of deployed service members defray utility, medical and dental bills, along with mortgage payments. This year, the foundation will award three general scholarships of $1,500 each to qualifying members of the Guard and/or their families.

Located on a four-acre lot with a pond, the 4,000-square-foot home will be priced at $1.95 million. Seventy percent of the profit from the sale will help support a restricted endowment fund. The remaining 30 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the home will be earmarked as an unrestricted general fund donation to the foundation.

The new venture is the latest act of giving in a long history of community commitment by LeBlanc-Jones. She was recently presented with the Philanthropist of the Year award from Vision Fund Inc, the charitable arm of the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Fairfield County. She also actively supports the A.L.S. Foundation and the Lymphoma Foundation, and has also participated in special fund-raisers for breast cancer and diabetes. She has three children: Burton Jones, who serves in the Army National Guard; Stephanie Jones, a sophomore at Manhattanville College; and Adam Jones, an assistant for LeBlanc-Jones at Coldwell Banker in New Canaan.

LeBlanc-Jones has served her community for over 20 years with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and is widely recognized for her insight into the area’s real estate market, including the communities of Fairfield County. Throughout her career, she has consistently placed among the top 1 percent of all Coldwell Banker sales associates nationally and has been Coldwell Banker’s top producer in Connecticut for seven consecutive years.
