The Forster Foundation's primary objective is to better the lives of people of all faiths in Florida and in Israel.
Since the outbreak of Covid 19, Bill Forster, President of the Forster Foundation, recognized the need for protection for the people who prepare, pack and serve food to the Palm Beach Food Bank's 90 agencies. Managing to work with a company to provide face masks, he set out on the task of raising money and provided the first 70,000 masks. There is still a need as the Virus continues to spread, for more masks. Our Mask Mission is one of the newer challenges to be met.
Mishpacha means family...In times of need, neighbors are family. The Forster Foundation, in partnership with the Chabad of Boca Raton, has begun a new mission to ensure elderly families in Century Village and other communities, have a Shabbat Dinner and some company to chat with at their table. This meal provides nourishment and comfort to a community overlooked when their children are not there to help.
Along with the Forster Foundation which supports many Miracle Missions, Bill Forster, President and National Director of Neve Michael Children's Village USA, provides avenues to support the many needs of Neve Michael, an organization like no other and very dear to the Foundations heart. In addition, the Foundation now supports other programs for even more children in Israel.
Through one of our initiatives, the Forster Foundation Wheelchair Mission, the objective is to provide disabled Israeli children of all faiths, wheelchairs fitted to meet their individual needs. The chairs are adjustable to meet their challenges for several years as they grow and develop. This life-changing gift enables each child to reach their full potential and provides them with hope, independence, mobility and self-esteem. This is an ongoing program.

Though the Forster Foundation has many ongoing projects with Neve Michael Children's Village, the gift of education and imagination is made possible through The Forster Foundation iPad Mission. The Foundation has delivered iPads to Neve Michael Children's Village. The Foundation also provided hospitals in Israel with iPads adapted for disabled children and outfitted for their specific needs.
The first recipients of the iPad mission were the children at Neve Michael Since then we have delivered iPads and tablets to other agencies who provide care to disabled children.
