The Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Fund is a nonprofit organization founded in memory of Richard Rudy. He passed away in a motor vehicle accident in 2005. Richie was a fun-loving and outgoing young man who grew up in Warwick, New York. His smile and laugh were contagious. He loved his friends and family very much. Rich also had an amazing knowledge of and love for cars and trucks. He was an aspiring young mechanic.
To celebrate his memory, Richard’s family established a memorial fund and host fundraising events as a way to gather donations for local children, families, and individuals in need. With a home base in New York's Hudson Valley region, the RJR Fund works tirelessly to assist those in need within 100 miles of Warwick, New York.
We find joy while helping others in tough situations due to medical problems, loss of a loved one, financial hardship, etc.
We help others because that is what Richie would do... because helping others makes like beautiful!
