  • Select the type of fund that best fits your goals. John Randolph Foundation staff can explain the advantages of each type of fund we offer.
  • Create a name for your fund.  You can use your name, the name of a family member, or the name of a favorite cause – or choose a name that allows you to remain anonymous.
