Welcome to the JIRUT Foundation
About the Founder
Ruth Poprilo is a registered nurse with more than 30 years of service in the healthcare industry. Besides being the founder and president of the JIRUT Foundation she is also president of Women of Purpose and Prosperity, a humanitarian organization of women who have a desire to work for the good of families who lack basic quality of life provisions.
The JIRUT Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non profit organization founded by Ruth Poprilo in 1996. The mission is to provide emergency assistance for families who are employed but can’t afford quality of life essentials such as bed linen, a refrigerator, eyeglasses or tuition for an elementary school age child. We believe that no parent should have to decide whether to buy shoes for a child or pay the gas bill. Help us help families in need so they won’t have to choose.
