The RuJohn Foundation began in 2003 in honor of Ruth and John Tulloch, the grandparents of CEO Andrew Bachelor and President Christina Bachelor. Ruth and John taught their children to help those who can't help themselves. To commemorate their memory, their grandchildren started the foundation.
What started out as small efforts, such as donations of T-Shirts and hurricane supplies, evolved into sponsoring school lunch programs, providing scholarship funds and holding annual celebrity sports camps. Over the years the foundation has helped dozens of schools and hundreds of children and adults while creating lasting partnerships with both Jamaican and American organizations.
RuJohn Foundation is a 501 c(3), non-profit organization whose mission is to
provide the necessary tools for education to the rural and inner city schools
of the United States and Jamaica.

To fulfill our mission, RuJohn Foundation has developed several programs and initiatives to encourage and motivate inner city and at risk youth throughout the United States and Jamaica. They are as Follows:
