The Randy Jones Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in San Diego, CA that seeks to provide new opportunities and resources for our military families, our kids and our community through education, housing, and outdoor activities.
Creating more opportunities
Since San Diego has a large military population, there are a number of children who miss out on these programs because one or both parents have been deployed, stationed abroad, or have given their lives serving our country. Here at the Randy Jones Foundation, our goal is to create more opportunities for these families to succeed by helping them obtain access to educational and sporting programs that other wise wouldn't be available. There are over 118,300 family members of active duty personnel that call San Diego County home; an estimated 71,759 of those (60.7%) are children.
The Randy Jones Foundation youth athletic scholarship program
These scholarships offer children of service members education, food, housing and financial assistance that helps provide a path for them to participate in athletic programs they would not be able to otherwise afford. Renewable scholarships are awarded on the basis of athletic ability, potential to succeed, and commitment to academic excellence. As an added bonus, our scholarship recipients must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA to secure grant access. College readiness is a desired outcome for these prominent military children. The RJF values the military community and is compelled to bring resources that truly make a difference.
