Rauch Family Foundation II

Rauch Family Foundation II, INC.

Grants to programs and projects for the enhancement of Judaism, its traditions and people.

Rauch II focuses on Judaism, the traditions and faith that enriched and gave meaning to Albert and Lester Rauch. The Tri-City Jewish Center with its services and community life was very important to them.

The Foundations grant programs attempt to nurture children, youth and adults in understanding and incorporating the values and traditions of Judaism in everyday life through study programs such as camperships and higher education scholarships.

Emphasis is given to helping the larger society remain knowledgeable of the Holocaust through the provision of educational materials and teacher training. Significant grants were awarded to the Jeff Leibowitz Special Collection of Holocaust Education Materials at the QC Regional Center of Western Illinois University and a similar collection at the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency.

Remembrance of the special assistance given the Rauch Family by the union prompts grants to meet individual needs.

The Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities, local synagogues, and several national and international Jewish charities periodically recieve support. Social services, immigration and water resource development in Israel are of particular interest.
