Nancy Gruskin and family start a foundation dedicated to NYC pedestrian safety

The mission of the Stuart C. Gruskin Family Foundation is to effect positive change in the lives of individuals in urban areas by creating safer roadways and infrastructures for pedestrians.
This foundation was established on April 22, 2010 in memory of Stuart C. Gruskin who was struck and tragically killed by a bicycle deliveryman going the wrong way on a one-way street in New York City on April 28, 2009.
Stuart C. Gruskin was a loving husband and father who worked tirelessly on behalf of his family, friends and community
He was a very successful Senior Vice-President of Valuation Research in New York City whose principled and honest approach to people were in an integral part of his work ethic. He was a member of Temple Emanuel in Westfield, NJ and was committed to humanitarian causes including caring for the homeless. 
We, as a family, decided to honor his memory and his love of New York City by helping to ensure
the safety and lives of millions.
The Foundation is committed to the advancement of pedestrian safety utilizing avenues including:
  • Advocacy for innovative legislation; Support for public awareness campaigns;
  • Work with elected officials to ensure the enforcement of laws and regulations;
  • Financial support to victims of pedestrian and cycling accidents, as identified by the Foundation’s Directors;
  • Collaboration with like-minded organizations, public institutions and government agencies.
  • Please note we do not accept unsolicited requests for funding.
