The Jefferson Ruritan Foundation (JRF) is the 501c3 non-profit subsidiary of the Jefferson (VA) Ruritan Club.  With that IRS status, it can accept donations which are 100% tax-deductible for the donor.

The Foundation's primary activity is to award scholarships to local college-bound students.  Since 1983, the Foundation, and the Club itself, previously, have granted over $28,000​ to dozens of local students.
