J. McLaughlin sells classic clothes with current relevance. Their collections include ready to wear, and accessories for men and women. With over 100 stores and a thriving E-commerce business, J. McLaughlin celebrates their continued success as classic American clothiers and one of the country’s last great first-name-basis retailers.
“We are excited to have J. McLaughlin support our mission to help change the lives of Collier County students by affording them the ability to attend college or technical school,” says Rob McNaghten, Founders Fund Board Chair. “We rely on businesses to help us meet our goals and are very thankful for this opportunity.”
In 2017, The Founders Fund awarded 37 Collier County students with $10,000 scholarships for college and post high school education. Students will receive $2,500 per year so long as they maintain a B average or better in their college studies. Currently the Founders Fund provides college scholarships for 96 Collier County high school graduates now attending college and/or technical institutes.
