The whimsically named Moozie Foundation is having a serious impact on the advancement of brain health. As one of several foundations associated with the Caroline Rose Hunt family, this foundation is Mrs. Hunt’s way of inspiring the next generation with a vehicle for their charitable passions.
“We are honored that the Moozie Foundation chose to champion veterans and military service members through brain performance-building programs at the Center for BrainHealth,” explained Leanne Young, Brain Performance Institute’s executive director.
A window-walled training room, named in honor of the Moozie Foundation, now welcomes members of the community and, particularly, military, law enforcement, and first responders, who are there to learn tactics and brain strategies to enhance decision-making and reduce stress-related symptoms.
“The trustees were looking to place a significant gift aligned with our mission,” said Lynn Mahurin, vice president of the Moozie Foundation, who oversees charitable giving. “Assisting people to achieve self-sufficiency is at the core of our funding efforts.”
Caroline Rose Hunt has been a steady supporter of the Center for BrainHealth for many years, through her generosity and other private donations, there is no cost to warrior training participants.
About that name — “Moozie” is the endearing name her 19 grandchildren call her, and the Brain Performance Institute is proud to be a recipient of one of its first donations.
