Maxim Charitable Foundation
History of the Foundation
Since its founding, Maxim Group recognized its obligation to be a socially responsible organization. In 2002, the Executive Committee established the Maxim Charitable Foundation to meet that obligation.
The Foundation originally contributed to such worthy causes as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the American Cancer Society, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and other organizations and associations. In 2004, the Executive Committee decided to change the focus of the Foundation. Instead of contributing to various charitable causes, a single recipient – a child with a severe medical condition who needed funds to meet uncovered expenses (medical & other) would be selected to receive the majority of the money raised that year. Each contribution has had a deep, life-affirming impact on the recipient and their family.
In 2010, the firm established the Maxim Group G.O.A.L. (Giving Opportunities of A Lifetime) Program. The G.O.A.L. Program is designed to provide underprivileged children, and children undergoing difficult medical treatment living in the greater New York City area, with an incredible experience that enriches the lives of the child and their family. A G.O.A.L. experience is often more than a dream come true: It’s the catalyst that rekindles their belief in themselves and the promise of a better future.
The Annual Maxim Charitable Golf Outing is the Foundation's primary fundraising event. In addition to the golf outing, the Maxim Charitable Foundation raises funds through different means, and Maxim Group employees contribute year-round by participating in various company events.
Maxim Group is especially grateful to its employees, sponsors, donors and volunteers whose time and support have truly enabled the Maxim Charitable Foundation to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
To date, the Maxim Charitable Foundation has contributed over $2,500,000 to worthy causes at home and abroad.
Referring a child for the G.O.A.L. Program is one of the most important parts of helping the Foundation accomplish its mission. The road to a meaningful G.O.A.L. experience starts when a caring person refers a child to the foundation.
