About Us

The Ausherman Family Foundation was established in 2006 by Marvin and Lisa Ausherman to fulfill their vision for Frederick County, Maryland.

Relationship between Ausherman Family Foundation and Ausherman Family Trust

Although they are two separate organizations, the Ausherman Family Foundation and Ausherman Family Trust have a partnership because they are motivated to achieve a common goal. The Foundation and Trust are operated fundamentally with the same programs, strategic plan, and management structure. However, the Foundation and Trust are funded separately. The Foundation is a private foundation, whereas the Trust is considered a supporting organization.

Because the Ausherman Family Foundation and Ausherman Family Trust run the same programs, and the main difference is the origins of the organizations' funding, the organizations have established multiple links between their websites in order to share their programs and grant recipients with visitors.
