Our Background

The Kyle Goldberg Memorial Foundation has been created after his tragic death in July, 2004. Like many young adults, Kyle suffered from an addiction to drugs. Our family struggles to understand how a well adjusted, bright, energetic, athletic, and promising person could fall prey to the power of drugs.

It is with the establishment of this Memorial Foundation we hope to help other young adults who struggle with this problem.

Though COVID-19 altered the way senior year looked for high schoolers as schools switched to operate remotely, and rituals were turned virtual or cancelled all together, we are happy to report the Suffern High School Scholarship Night was still able to recognize and reward students. The Kyle Goldberg Memorial Foundation was able to reward its scholarship for the 15th year to a most deserving student – a submission that had us all laughing and admiring the hard work, obvious effort and time spent to create it. Best wishes and success as you move forward with your education.

On Tuesday October 23, KGMF will be attending The Masters School for a school-wide assembly to the Upper School students, where Stephen Hill will be speaking. The school’s community service organization, MISH (Masters Interested in Serving and Helping), has invited KGMF to be the sponsored “Jeans Day” organization. This means community members can donate $1 to wear jeans for the two Fridays following the presentation, and all donations will be made to our foundation. We look forward to being a part of the day!
