A Tribute To Lauren And A Mother’s Love.
The Foundation’s Credo Is “Mothers Matter”

The Lauren Rose Albert Foundation is an all-volunteer 501(c )3 non-profit organization established in 2000 by Lauren’s parents, family and friends to honor her memory. The Foundation’s credo – “Mothers Matter” – is a tribute to Lauren and a mother’s love. Our Mission is to encourage mothers to achieve economically and educationally and to seek brighter futures for themselves and their families – this reflects Lauren’s legacy of helping others lead better lives.

About Our Inspiration

Lauren Rose Albert

Lauren Rose grew up in Woodmere, New York and Cherry Hill, New Jersey with her parents, Susan and Stuart, and her younger sisters Jackie, Amy and Elizabeth. She was the wife of Dr. Todd Albert and the mother of Stuart, Elliot and Emily. On February 18, 1999 Lauren was a passenger in a vehicle that tumbled down a mountainside in Morocco, killing her. She was only 40. Lauren was truly, a ray of sunshine. Full of laughter, love and light, Lauren’s smile would warm and comfort all who were touched by her radiance, her gentleness and her compassion.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to encourage mothers to achieve educationally and economically and to seek brighter futures for themselves and their families. In carrying out our Mission, we pledge to uphold and advocate Lauren’s values and wishes for a safer, gentler world.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to bring Lauren’s Legacy of Love, Laughter and Light to children and families in need; to help those who do not have a lot of sunshine in their lives. Our Vision is to extend a helping hand to young women who best reflect Lauren’s values and attributes; to provide financial assistance to help them achieve goals and success in life. By carrying out its Mission to help others realize their full potential to lead lives of contribution and service, the Foundation will ensure that Lauren’s Legacy of Love, Laughter and Light lives on for all our Tomorrows.

ABOUT WHAT WE DO

About Our Founder

Susan Rose

On February 18, 1999, Susan Rose got the phone call every parent fears. The oldest of her four daughters, 40-year-old Lauren, had been killed in a car accident while vacationing in Morocco, leaving behind her husband and three children. Mourning the loss immobilized Rose and forced her to retire from her job as a state employee. She calls what happened next “a wonderful effort by family and friends to help me work through my grief.” Given Lauren’s penchant for helping others, they suggested Rose start a charity in Lauren’s name.
