Charter

The Drs John and Geraldine Weil dedicated their lives to the wellbeing of children. At their behest, and in their memory, the John Leopold Weil and Geraldine Rickard Weil Memorial Charitable Foundation, inc. was created in 1999. The Weil Foundation is dedicated to carrying on the legacy of the Drs. Weil by working to ameliorate psychological problems of children.

The Weil Foundation works to further its goals in three ways:

  1. Providing grants to non-profit organizations in Greater Boston that provide direct services such as psychological counseling, shelter, and therapy for at-risk children and parents.
  2. Disseminating information on programmatic approaches and interventions that have proven to help these children. The prime vehicle for this is a series of lectures co-sponsored with the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.
  3. Supporting research evaluating the effectiveness of approaches to the treatment and prevention of child abuse. For this problem to be overcome in the long run, it is vital that the world's efforts be focussed on those methods that are most effective.
