The Ben May Charitable Trust

The Ben May Charitable Trust was established in the 1970s in memory of Mr. Ben May, an American businessman and a philanthropist.  His charitable giving funded cancer research and supported the work of Prof. Alexander Fleming, who discovered penicillin.

Mr. May had a special relationship with the Weizmann Institute; he was a member of the American Committee and also was personally acquainted with Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the Institute’s first President as well as the first President of Israel.
