JRF was initially established in 1991 as a supporting organization to the John Randolph Medical Center, a nonprofit hospital at the time. In 1995, the Medical Center was sold to Columbia/HCA, a for-profit corporation, and the Foundation became a separate, nonprofit organization. The proceeds from the sale were given to the Foundation to establish an endowment, our Mission Fund, which has grown steadily under our prudent investment policies.

Today, the Mission Fund supports the Foundation’s grant program, carrying out our mission to improve the health and well-being of the Tri-Cities area.

Since 1995, JRF has invested over $18 million in the community through grants and over $1.6 million in scholarships. Through the generosity of our donors, we manage 12 endowments, 65 scholarships, and three award programs.

John Randolph Foundation is one of Virginia’s 14 health legacy foundations, a founding member of the Virginia Consortium of Health Philanthropy, and a member of the Virginia Gift Planning Council.
