Moritz Mayer: Computer Literacy Grant

German-born Moritz Mayer did not have an easy life.  Upon his father’s sudden death, it became 15-year old Moritz’ responsibility to care for his mother and siblings.  He then was drafted by Kaiser Wilhelm to fight for the “Fatherland” in World War I.  Later, he was forced to flee the Nazis, eventually finding work in a Columbus bakery.  Moritz Mayer had no children.  He left the bulk of his estate to the Foundation.  The most recent grant from his memorial endowment was made to the students of the Columbus Torah Academy for computer lab upgrades.
