A family foundation committed to making a positive impact.
To promote wellness and access to opportunities so that individuals and communities can thrive.
Grounded in our work in Connecticut and New York, we support visionary leaders and nonprofit organizations that serve historically marginalized populations, help individuals contribute to their communities, and champion advancements and experiences that make it possible for all people to live healthy and joyous lives.
Even as our grantmaking has evolved, we continue to be guided by four core pillars.
We see our grant recipients as equal partners and pride ourselves on fostering relationships that go beyond grants.
With the goal of solving the most challenging problems, we invest in bold people and untested ideas.
We believe education, leadership training and mentorship can change lives and empower people to make the world a better place.
Even after 30+ years in philanthropy we still operate like a start-up, ready and willing to take chances on people and new ideas.
Our $1.5 Million Commitment to Innovation
Our new fund focuses on three issue areas affecting children and their families: mental health, early intervention efforts in schools, and public health approaches to reducing gun violence.
