John Leopold Weil and Geraldine Rickard Weil
Memorial Charitable Foundation, inc.
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
