Core values we all share
Our founders Rebecca and Arthur Samberg, along with their grown children and spouses have crafted a giving strategy for the Foundation rooted in core values we all share.
An imperative to make the world a better place.
Jewish tradition teaches that we have a duty to repair the world. We embrace this responsibility with humility.
Belief in the power of education to improve life prospects.
All children should have access to educational opportunities and support known to produce well-rounded citizens equipped to contribute back to their communities.
Commitment to healthy living for children and families.
Poverty has a harmful effect on health. When underlying, poverty-related factors are acknowledged and uniquely addressed within health care settings, better health ensues.
Connection to our home community of New York.
Our family’s roots are in New York. While we support initiatives that are national in scope, we have a special interest in and dedication to children and families in the New York metro area.
Deep respect for the Jewish past and future.
We wish to keep Jewish history, culture and values alive and relevant. We know that powerful transformations occur when young people connect to their Jewish heritage and become part of a larger Jewish community through meaningful, high quality experiences.
