Righteous Persons Foundation
DescriptionThe Foundation, created by directed Steven Spielberg, with profits from his film, Schindlerís List, is dedicated to supporting efforts that build a diverse, just, and vibrant Jewish community in the United States. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on supporting national programs that foster Jewish arts, culture, and identity; invest in the next generation on issues of Jewish identity, community, and meaning; inspire a commitment to social justice; and promote understanding between Jews and those of other faiths and backgrounds. The Foundation looks for innovative approaches to help bridge the divide between people of different backgrounds; galvanize the power of the arts, media, and storytelling; preserve Jewish history and traditions and make them accessible for generations to come; build on the Jewish value of justice to inspire social activities; and ensure that the moral lessons of the Holocaust are not forgotten. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
