Morton on Tzedakah

The Meyerson Family Foundations

Morton and his family firmly believe in the Jewish philosophy of “Tzedakah” – the Hebrew word for the just and righteous giving required of Jews, and 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 the following areas:

  • Providing assistance in Texas, New York, Arizona, Montana and Israel to enable people to take control of their lives and live with dignity.
  • Funding medical research, with a current focus on ovarian cancer.
  • Assisting humanities programs and the arts.

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.
