“As we go about our work we recognize that none of us accomplishes much of anything
meaningful alone. It is only through the dedicated and collective effort of many
– Neal H. Mayerson, Ph.D., President
Giving to improve communities
The Mayerson family has a tradition of giving generously to those in need. Even when earlier generations struggled to make ends meet, there were always a few coins set aside to help others. Today, The Mayerson Foundation carries on that legacy, ensuring charitable assets are distributed in a way that will improve the world. The Mayerson Foundation invests in high-quality projects and ideas that empower marginalized groups and create caring, respectful communities. It supports those with a passion to live to their potential and, in turn, help many others. In joining the eSSENTIAL Accessibility coalition, The Mayerson Foundation is providing tools to people with disabilities that can help enable their self-sufficiency and further that same cause.
Two Foundations, Working As One
Two foundations work together to serve the community. The grant-making foundation, The Manuel D. & Rhoda Mayerson Foundation, invests in highly effective and efficient organizations positioned within their field to make a significant impact on the issues they address. The operating foundation aims to generate and implement innovative approaches to important issues in several areas of interest for the purpose of contributing new knowledge and filling important unmet needs.
Inclusion Of People With Disabilities
The Mayerson Foundation invests in populations that face exclusion, yet have great potential to improve the lives of themselves and others. The Foundation actively supports efforts that empower people with disabilities and promote inclusion. Funded projects include: Transition and Access Program (TAP) at the University of Cincinnati, designed to offer students with intellectual disabilities a bridge to adulthood; and May We Help, which leverages skilled volunteers to create assistive technology for people with disabilities.
