About the Fund

The mission of the Maximilian J. Grochowski Memorial Fund is to provide charitable donations to children's organizations and other non-profits that honor the memory of Max. We provide financial grants that support children's organizations, mothers of multiples, and educational institutions. Put simply, we give back to the organizations and institutions that provided us and countless other families with so much support over the years.

The Max Grochowski Fund is a part of the Scranton Area Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As such, all gifts to the fund are tax deductible under the full extent of the law. For additional questions about the fund, please contact the Scranton Area Foundation at (570) 347-6203.
