History & Vision

The Margoes Foundation was established in 1984 by the will of John A. Margoes. John Margoes envisioned the Foundation to be a resource and catalyst to support imaginative and creative program opportunities that enabled low-income and other disadvantaged youth to obtain a college education and people with mental disabilities to live in non-institutional environments and lead productive lives.
