About Us

Our Mission Statement 

The Jimmy Rane Foundation is dedicated to providing college scholarships to deserving students and strengthening our communities through education projects and grants.


About the Foundation

The Jimmy Rane Foundation was created with a simple, yet powerful idea: “It’s about giving something back.” That was the guiding principle for James W. “Jimmy” Rane when he established the Foundation in 2000. And that’s exactly what he and countless sponsors have been able to do since then. Over the years, the Jimmy Rane Foundation has awarded 422 college scholarships to outstanding and deserving students. The awards are given with the idea and hope that these students will one day return the favor to someone else in need.
