The Anapol Weiss Foundation
Our Clients Become Our Causes
The Anapol Weiss Foundation was established by the Philadelphia law firm Anapol Weiss in order to provide support to organizations that work to improve the lives of those suffering from life-altering injuries, including brain injuries, burn injuries, paralysis and amputation. Since 2002 the Anapol Weiss Foundation has awarded more than $300,000 to non-profit organizations that serve those with injuries similar to our clients.
The presentations to students provide facts and information, do not include lecturing or “talking down” to students and invite students to help design solutions to the distracted driving epidemic. EndVaping.org will follow the successful approaches of EndDD.org , including respect for students and their ability to make safe and healthy choices for themselves and friends.
EndDD.org (End Distracted driving), a campaign of the Casey Feldman Foundation, whose mission is to save lives by ending distracted driving. Anapol Weiss has been a primary sponsor of EndDD.org and, as of the Fall of 2019, more than 450,000 students across the country have seen an EndDD.org presentation given by volunteer speakers all without cost to schools.
The Amputee Support Fund Established

The Foundation established a Fund at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital to aid amputees obtain necessary items their insurance will not cover. The Amputee Support Fund has provided funding for education programs, medical equipment, and other help for amputees and their families.

Ford has quickly become an integral part of the occupational therapy team, working with patients suffering life-altering injuries and trying to adapt to new lives.
