Gregory J. Reiter Memorial Fund

Founded by Alysoun Mahoney in memory of her husband Greg, with a focus on causes to which the couple shared a commitment during Greg's life - particularly animal rescue, veganism and wildlife conservation.

This special fund supports initiatives such as the PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) campaign to end cruelty toward racehorses and its Community Animal Project to rescue dogs, cats, and other animals from neglect and abandonment; Animal Place's Food for Thought program to help wildlife and environmental organizations adopt earth- and animal-friendly menu policies; and the White Coat Waste Project to end the cruelest and most wasteful taxpayer-funded animal experiments.

In addition to making a gift to this fund through this donation page, a check can be mailed to The Community Foundation of Frederick County, 312 East Church Street, Frederick, MD 21701. Please note “Reiter Memorial Fund” in the check’s memo line. A thank-you with charitable gift language will be mailed; gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
