Who We Support

The Richard M. Brodsky Foundation is committed to not only supporting local AIDS and cancer projects in Brodsky' s home turf, Long Island, New York, through its annual 5k Event, but also has a strong commitment to global AIDS projects through its annual World AIDS Marathon. Brodsky believes there are many facets involved in the HIV illness that need to be addressed. The Foundation also holds true to the fact, that we are aware of other illnesses and believe that only when people from different genres of life come together, we can really paint to a canvas that will evoke an image of hope for a brighter tomorrow

Fish Farming and Related Training and Economic Development in Kenya
For several years Susan has been traveling to Kenya at her own expense, and volunteering her time to train and support local people in fish farming. Susan’s expertise as a fisheries biologist enables her to deliver this program. Funds raised are used to cover the costs of training, materials, the set-up of a micro-credit system and for local assistance to oversee the success of the initiative. In recent years additional economic development programs such as a training center where girls learn sewing through a women’s tailoring co-operative, and a micro-credit program so that fish farmers can buy nets and other supplies, have been added to this project. Provides a nourishing diet, jobs that allow parents to stay at home, and reduce the spread of AIDS.
