WILLIAM G. POMEROY FOUNDATION is a private foundation established by Bill Pomeroy in 2006. The Foundation has two areas of particular interest and focus, both based on two of Bill's greatest passions. One is to help diversify the Be the Match Registry by conducting bone marrow drives in diverse communities to help in the fight against blood cancers. The other is to preserve history through the Foundation's Historic Roadsice Marker Program in New York State. The founder has been a student of history and genealogy for many years and has developed a strong belief in the importance of historic research and preservation, and the role of historic tourism in economic development.
