The Ted Rullo Foundation was founded in memory of a man who was a charismatic leader and mentor to many young men and women. True to his tradition of making the world a better place than he found it, this not for profit organization will serve to provide college scholarships for deserving high school athletes. Additionally, this foundation will raise money to end Alzheimers which was another special philanthropy to the Rullo Family.

Ted Rullo believed that "hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard". Ted attributed much of his own professional and personal success to the foundational lessons he learned as a young high school and later college athlete. It is our hope that the young men and women who benefit from the Ted Rullo Foundation will one day pay it forward in their own communities through leadership, youth mentoring, and community service.
