Delores Barr Weaver and J. Wayne Weaver, former owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise, have donated their home at 6120 San Jose Boulevard West to The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. The property is listed for sale at $4.7 million, and proceeds from the sale will go into the Weaver Family Foundation Fund at the Foundation, where they will be used to benefit nonprofit organizations.

The Weavers will continue their philanthropy by establishing a $1 million, endowed advised fund at the Foundation in the name of the buyer(s) who purchase the property at the listed price of $4.7 million.  The buyer(s) would name the fund, advise grants from the fund, and name successors to the fund. The foundation staff will provide support, as it does with all advised funds.
