A Half-Century of Experience to Guide You
For nearly 60 years, The Foundation has helped individuals, institutions and professional advisors have the greatest possible impact on both the Jewish community and the community at large.
We are the largest manager of charitable assets and the leader in planned giving solutions for Greater Los Angeles Jewish philanthropists. The Foundation currently manages assets of $812 million (as of Dec. 31, 2012) and ranks among the 11 largest Los Angeles foundations (based on assets).
In 2012, The Foundation and its more than 1,000 donors distributed $53 million in grants to hundreds of organizations with programs that span the range of philanthropic giving.
We're quite active with a number of causes, and we use our fund at The Foundation to support them more efficiently.
