This Foundation honors the beautiful life of Kaeli Kramer. It is a living tribute to the good that was within her and which is in all of us. The Foundation will carry out the work which Kaeli started, and will support the causes about which she cared so deeply. The Foundation was started by Kaeli’s parents, Linda and Peter Kramer, who shared Kaeli’s love for animals, and have supported other animal welfare interests for many years.
Linda Kramer is co- founder and President of the Kaeli Kramer Foundation. She is a lifelong equestrian who has volunteered in many animal welfare causes, including therapeutic riding and shelter work. She is a New York state certified special education teacher who worked for over 15 years in Long Island private and public schools. In addition, she is an attorney whose practice includes matrimonial, mediation, real estate and corporate law.
Peter Kramer is co- founder and Vice President of the Kaeli Kramer Foundation. He operates a business and management consulting firm. He presently serves on the board of the Foundation for Long Island State Parks and has served as Chairman of the Long Island State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Commission . He is also an advisor to Metro New York Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Donna Cabble is Secretary and director the Foundation’s thriving Life Skills and Humane Education Programs on Long Island. Donna’s dedication to charitable causes runs the gamut from breast cancer research and suicide prevention to any and all animal rights causes. She and her dog Bella work as certified pet therapy providers at a local nursing home. When not working at her career as a medical records coding and compliance consultant for Long Island’s largest hospitals, she likely is engaged in some form of selfless service to a good cause.
Arielle Kriegsman, Kaeli’s closest friend, is a second-year student at Tufts University Veterinary School and a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Arielle is a devoted animal advocate, a master vegan baker and an accomplished violinist. She is also working on a vegan cookbook for our foundation and has shared many delicious recipes with us.
