The Martha Maher-Garcia Memorial Foundation was established in 2016 in memory and honor of Martha Maher-Garcia, a loving mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, leader in the workplace and Rochester community, and a warrior in her seven-year battle with cancer. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit organization.
The Martha Maher-Garcia Memorial Foundation seeks to pay tribute to Martha’s legacy of kindness, perseverance, and hope by supporting women in higher education and families affected by cancer. To this end, the Foundation supports these missions:
- The Foundation works to raise money to fund college scholarships for working mothers who, like Martha, decided to improve their families’ futures by pursuing higher education.
- The Foundation seeks to raise funds for organizations providing financial resources for families affected by cancer.
- The Foundation aims to raise funds to support innovative research into discovery of a cure for breast cancer.
The Martha Maher-Garcia Memorial Foundation strives to make a real difference in the lives of working mothers and families in the Rochester area and, like Martha, represent a beacon for a better tomorrow.
We invite you to join us in honoring Martha’s legacy by becoming involved in the Foundation’s important work.
