I am fortunate to have a family, including two wonderful, healthy boys, that have grown into fine young men. Our family was able to provide shelter, food, clothing, and educational opportunity for our children. Not all families have the same abilities - some having urgent, seemingly insurmountable hurdles preventing success. We aim to assist those children, who are economically and/or socially disadvantaged, through educational support, nutritional support, recreational support, and emergency aid when appropriate.

JORY Children's Foundation (so named to honor my sons, Jonathan and Ryan) is the realization of a long-time goal of mine to provide a way to provide help to those less fortunate. The Foundation was formed in September of 2015, and we've received notification from the IRS that we are recognized as a tax-exempt, non-profit charity under section 501(c)3, meaning all your donations are tax deductible.
