Bright Futures Club: Why become a monthly donor?

August 21, 2017 4:31 pm Published by

In 2016, we tried something new at the Foundation. We invited our donors to give monthly using a new automated debit service – and wow! We were overjoyed at the response. As a member of the Bright Futures Club – the Foundation’s monthly giving program – I can tell you there are great benefits.

Personally, I give to John Randolph Foundation in memory of my grandmother, Mary Gore Thomas. She was a pioneer in the field of nursing, and she worked at John Randolph Hospital for years. She would be proud to know her memory lives on, helping people to be healthy both physically and mentally.

My top benefits? Spreading out my gift over a year allows me to give more, and having it come out of my account automatically each month is super convenient. Plus, seeing my Grandma Mary’s name on my bank statement brings a smile to my face.

So, why become a monthly donor?

“For me, when I have a rough week, often the first week of the month, I check my bank statement to find my modest donation to John Randolph Foundation. And, I think well, at least that was a good thing. That is a positive in my life and in the community.” – Jan Rowley, Bright Futures Club Member 




“I give to JRF because the mission and the outreach have stayed true to our communities since its founding, and for my personal belief in giving back.  I enjoy giving because I see the impact that every gift – regardless of the amount – can make every day. As a board member for nine years, and now as Director of Programs, I strongly believe in our successes, and my entire family feels great about giving each month.” – Kevin Foster, Bright Futures Club Member
