The Meyerson Family
Morton and his family firmly believe in the Jewish philosophy of Tzedakah – the Hebrew word for the obligation to help others. They pursue Tzedakah projects through their two family foundations, The Morton H. Meyerson Family Foundation and The Marlene Nathan Meyerson Family Foundation.
These foundations focus on assisting underserved communities and individuals, providing access to basic human needs, and supporting Jewish organizations and programs.
The foundations primarily support small non-profit organizations with low administrative expenses and “change agent” leaders who are passionate, competent and kind.
The foundations do not accept unsolicited grant requests.
