STRIVING TO MAKE A
The Rochelle and Richard Maize Foundation is a philanthropic organization that supports and contributes resources to aid local and global community causes. By using programs focusing on art, fundraising, culture and family services, the Rochelle and Richard Maize Foundation’s objective is to create solutions, inspire youth advancements through mentorship and sponsor healthcare initiatives.
Rochelle Maize has been honored for her philanthropic works at the LA Bureau Journal’s 17th Annual Women Making a Difference Awards, and the foundation has been recognized for its contributions on numerous charitable groups, nonprofits and community projects including continued work with the American Cancer Society, the 18th Maccabiah World Games in Israel and the “Accessories for Success Lunch and Fashion Show Benefit” for the Big Brothers / Big Sisters (BBBS) – the proceeds of which were donated to the mentorship of children in need.
The Maizes have also passed on their spirit of philanthropy to their children; and at 15, their daughter Ally Maize founded Green Youth Movement (GYM) — a program to educate youth about environmental awareness and eco-friendly behavior by taking small steps that can make a big difference for the future.
Through the foundation, Richard and Rochelle Maize have regularly supported organizations and causes such as:
- Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services
- Hurricane Katrina
- American Cancer Society
- Los Angeles Police Foundation
- Cedars Sinai Board of Governors
The Rochelle and Richard Maize Foundation continually aims to work with various non-profit organizations and charitable endeavors to find meaningful ways to have the greatest positive impact in the lives of others.
The Maizes currently reside in California with their daughters Amanda and Ally.
