The Donald C. and Laura M. Harrison Family Foundation
The Foundation was established in 2006 by Donald and Laura Harrison and their children in Cincinnati, Ohio. Laura Harrison is an active community volunteer involved in a broad group of activities. Dr. Harrison is a cardiologist, administrator, and business entrepreneur.
They have creatively funded programs and facilities at their respective colleges and have participated in supporting a number of local charitable organizations with educational missions for the underprivileged.
Mission of the Harrison Foundation
The Foundation seeks to improve opportunities and outcomes primarily for underprivileged students by funding educational scholarships, programs, and research, with a particular emphasis on seeding and supporting new programs.
Purpose of the Foundation
The Foundation’s primary initiative is to support the launch of new and innovative educational programs for primary, secondary, and adult education. Another emphasis is focused on funding programs for underprivileged children, youth, adults, and families, which will empower them to become productive and contributing citizens. Programs that project sustainability after two years of funding by the Foundation and programs that have additional matching fund opportunity will receive higher priorities.
