MISSION & VALUES
The Majerus Family Foundation affirms the vision of our founder, Rick Majerus, that athletics, education, medical research and social justice are important cornerstones in the well-being of a global community. The foundation works to create and expand opportunities for individuals from all walks of life to reach their potential by creating access to one or more of these four areas:
Serving the athletic arena through multiple sports, ages, and avenues through scholarships, gyms, events, and more
Aiding both the youth and adult community through educational financial resources and advancements
Offering funding to research centers and programs to help foster hope and healing
Equality and service are cornerstones of the Majerus Family Foundation mission
Rick Majerus was more than just a wildly successful coach and mentor. Rick’s giving nature is what propels his legacy today, through the gifts and efforts of the Majerus Family Foundation.
From the Huntsman Cancer Institute ($2 million) to Marquette University ($1 million) to countless schools, athletic programs (most notably the Rick Majerus Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout), the Majerus Family Foundation strives to create and expand opportunities for individuals from all walks of life to reach their potential.
Approximately 50 high-school boys teams compete at Concordia University in Mequon, Wis. The event showcases the talents of top teams and individual players. In conjunction with sponsoring the event, the Majerus Foundation awards $5,000 college scholarships to senior players who complete an application, submit a recommendation, and meet the scholarship criteria.
