GAR Memorial Foundation
About the Gordon A. Rich Memorial Foundation
Gordon A. Rich was a committed supporter of people of lesser means and limited opportunities. While he was alive, he donated enormous amounts of his incredible energy, passion and resources to help improve their conditions. The Gordon A. Rich Memorial Foundation (GAR) intends to carry on that commitment.

GAR will accept applications in the Winter of 2016-2017 for grants for the 2017-2018 academic year. Recipients will be chosen based on very demanding criteria, including academic performance, extracurricular activities and financial need.
