From their first record-breaking gift to the Neag School of Education to their generous support for life-saving care at the Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Calhoun Cardiology Center, they have built the momentum to create the Neag Foundation. Ray and Carole have advocated on behalf of education, healthcare, and the arts and humanities and they always hoped that others would follow their lead. In Pennsylvania, their donations have made a large impact, including the creation of the Carole and Ray Neag Medical Center on the campus of Caron Treatment Centers. They have also donated funds to support the Meals on Wheels program for the Berks Encore program.

Carole and Ray’s legacy is the creation of the Neag Foundation, based on their belief that philanthropy can and should make a positive difference in the world, and the mission of giving back.
