The MAJERUS FAMILY FOUNDATION strives to create opportunities for individuals, from all walks of life, to reach their potential through the cornerstones of athletics, education, medical research and social justice.
The Majerus Family Foundation affirms our founder, Rick Majerus’s, vision that athletics, education, medical research, and social justice are important cornerstones in the well-being of a global community. The Foundation’s mission is to provide and empower opportunities and experiences for individuals—from all walks of life—to reach their potential by providing affordability and accessibility to one or more of the Foundation’s four cornerstones.
The Majerus Family Foundation carries out the mission of Rick, Ray, Alyce and the Majerus family through support of a wide variety of organizations and events that promote education, social justice, medical research, and athletic opportunity. The Majerus Family Foundation’s gifts have and continue to impact people from all walks of life all across the country.
The story of our foundation is truly the story of our family, and it begins with Ray and Alyce Majerus. Rick inherited a strong desire to improve the lives of others, a tremendous sense of community, and a contagious spirit of charity from his wonderful parents. In many ways, the Majerus Family Foundation is a reflection of these family values that continue to be handed down from generation to generation.
Rick’s life was guided by a simple principle: treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Every day was a gift, and a day rarely went by where Rick didn’t make a positive impact on someone’s life. Whether it was feeding the hungry on Christmas Eve or partnering with charitable organizations, Rick’s giving nature is what propels his legacy today through the gifts and efforts of the Majerus Family Foundation.
