Purpose and Activities

The foundation's mission is to: 1) promote positive outcomes for young children, ages newborn to 6, with particular focus on those with a disadvantaged socio-economic start. The foundation's first priority is to support programs that facilitate systemic change for those children and their families; 2) to protect the environment and improve the quality of life on Long Island, NY, and in MD; and 3) to strengthen the organizational effectiveness of nonprofit institutions that work on these issues through capacity building and leadership development. The foundation focuses its work in the places where Rauch family members have lived and worked-- Long Island, NY, and MD.
