Brad Rankin Kid's College Fund

As many of you know, Brad Rankin passed away all too soon on October 26, 2017. He was a great friend, loving father, hard-working colleague, and servant to his country. He left a significant impact on our lives that we still feel. At the time of Brad’s death, there was an outpouring of generosity from Brad’s friends and colleagues and people continue to ask what else they might be able to do. 

Brad leaves behind his three beautiful children Haelyn (13), Ashlyn (10) and Jaden (9).  We want to pay it forward with Brad’s family and help set them up for success as they face this world without their Dad. 

In memory of our friend and colleague, we want to invite you to help by joining the ‘100 Club.’  It has one simple objective: to raise at least $100,000 for Brad’s children’s college fund by the end of Q1’18. An ambitious goal. We are looking for 100 or more people to make commitments to this club with three contribution levels of $250, $500 and $1000. We will hit the $100,000 mark and make a meaningful impact on the future lives of these children. This proposal is fully supported by Hee Young (Brad’s wife) and children.

We know Brad would do the same for any of us would the roles be reversed.

The details of the 100 Club:

•        We have set up a ‘go fund me’ with 3 different tiered contribution levels at Silver $250, Gold $500, Platinum $1,000

•        Upon donating, please send a special note to Brad’s kids with words of encouragement when you donate through the website.

•        We ask that you donate what you can before the end of February

•        Hee Young will control the funds and direct them to the children’s 529 accounts at her discretion.
