“..the relationship of Mother and Child remains indelible and indestructible – the strongest bond upon this earth.”
— Theodor Reik

Year Founded

2011, in honor of Meredith and Cory’s Wedding

Mission Statement

Roberta’s Gift is a non-profit organization founded by Meredith and Cory Rothman in memory of Meredith’s mother. Roberta’s Gift is a foundation that provides help and support to single mothers experiencing challenging health issues. The movement is designed to assist women emotionally, financially and physically in their day-to-day lives, while providing a stable and loving environment for their children.

What the Fund is About

The fund strives to assist single mothers while they undergo short or long term treatment for their illnesses, and support can be provided in multiple forms, such as:

Childcare (daycare or long term) and mentorship
Support groups for women and children
Transportation services
Assistance with medical bills
Disability services
Food and grocer assistance


Not a day goes by in which I do not think about my mother,
wish she was here and thank her in my thoughts for everything
she gave me and the woman she has helped me to become.
Roberta brought so much joy to this world – she was a gift to all around her
.  We hope to continue her legacy by giving to others, the gift she brought to us.
