Overview:

The Marks Family Foundation supports organizations that provide programs in education, arts, environmental sustainability, or health for youth and under-represented populations.

New York business leader Randolph Marks founded the Marks Family Foundation in Buffalo in 1991 as a way to give back to the community that supported him and his family throughout his business career.

Although the Foundation gives preference to requests from western New York and Vermont, where members of the Marks family reside, the organization does occasionally make grant awards for causes that individual members are passionate about, regardless of location.

Our Mission

We provide funding for organizations that offer programs in education, arts, or health for youth and under-represented populations. Our primary focus is local to western New York, with secondary consideration given to Vermont.
