The Randy Foye Foundation serves the youth of Newark, NJ. The foundation is named after former Villanova Basketball player and current NBA player, Randy Foye. Foye grew up on the rough streets of Newark and experienced the harsh realities of the streets first hand. He was orphaned by the age of 6 and was a witness to many things no one should ever have to see in their lifetime. With the help of his teachers and mentors, Foye made it out of the streets and vowed to come back and help someday. He's made it his passion to mentor the youth of his hometown in the hopes that they are able to make better lives for themselves just as he did. When you make a contribution to this organization, you directly see where your donation goes. You can be confident that you're helping children in Newark and that the money is being put to great use. I love Randy's story and love that I'm able to help him help his community.
Randy Foye is an example of true altruism. He is grateful for having been given many opportunities, and is determined to demonstrate his love for the children of the city of Newark, his home towm. He is sincere in his efforts, and is humble and almost uncomfortable to receive recognition and praise. What an amazing role model for these kids!
The Randy Foye Foundation is an incredible organization with a clear mission. In addition to the financial assistance that they provide to a much-needed area, the leaders of this organization also regularly mentor youth through the Assist for Life program. I truly believe that the mentoring is a life-changing experience for these students as it helps prepare them for the future.
The Randy Foye Foundation continues to support the students in anyway needed. Each student got a backpack. They also have established a clothing pantry to support families who cannot afford school uniforms. Wherever their is a need the RFF comes to the rescue.
The Randy Foye Foundation is an organization which provides children from low income families in the underpriveldged neighborhoods of Newark an opportunity to better themselves through education,athletics,and new found hope. I have had the opportunity to meet with a few of the children who have been impacted by the RFF and can see the confidence,determination,and self-pride that the organization has instilled in them. These qualities will be instrumental in catapulting the children to a life of civic mindedness and I believe that because of the RFF they will become positive role models in the future of our communities.
The RFF is a wonderful charity that truly helps the community. I had a wonderful experience raising money for the foundation with a few fundraisers. I had a wonderful experience working with them and was happy to raise money for them during my training and racing of the Burlington marathon.
I am continually impressed by this organization and the heart it has for doing good and helping others. They do it from an extremely genuine and deep place and I am consistently moved by their efforts, commitment and passion.
