The Mario St. George Boiardi Foundation
The Mario St. George Boiardi Foundation honors the memory of Mario St. George Boiardi, a selfless leader and loyal friend, who gave his life in March 2004 while playing lacrosse, the game he loved. The Foundation’s mission is to carry on George’s work by empowering the next generation through academics and athletics.
The Foundation honors George’s legacy by raising and donating funds to worthwhile charitable organizations that help cultivate and nurture our youth through academic and athletic endeavors, two of George’s lifelong passions.
Additionally, the Foundation has created a Summer Camp Program, which provides financial assistance to deserving middle school students who wish to attend summer camps focused on academic, athletic, or other educational pursuits.
