The Daniel and Susan Pfau Foundation
The Pfau Foundation was established in 1994 in Cincinnati by Daniel A. Pfau and Susan Laufer Pfau.
Mrs. Pfau, a community volunteer, and Mr. Pfau, a local businessman, have been actively involved in programs serving disabled and disadvantaged youth, and in organizations promoting the Greater Cincinnati area. The Foundation complements the Pfaus’ personal charitable efforts and will continue their support into the future.
Purpose of the Pfau Foundation
The Foundation’s primary focus is on the education, health, cultural experience, and social welfare of disabled children, adolescents, young adults (to age 30), and their families. A secondary focus is on disadvantaged children, adolescents, young adults (to age 30), and their families. There is a special interest in programs which help clients realize their full potential.
An additional area of interest for the Foundation is the support of large regional arts and cultural organizations. The Foundation will consider small- and mid-size arts organizations that use the arts as a vehicle for achieving impact rather than the end goal and are able to share results of successful outcomes. (These outcomes must be aligned with the first two priorities of the Foundation). A fourth area of interest is recreation areas.
