The Elie Hirschfeld Foundation

The Elie Hirschfeld Foundation supports a variety of organizations, with an emphasis on institutions dedicated to education, healthcare, athletics, and Jewish causes. This website chronicles the work of the foundation and hopes to encourage others to engage in philanthropic giving.

Mr. Hirschfeld’s personal history of giving began when he was a student at Brown University. In his sophomore year, Elie Hirschfeld became President of Brown’s Hillel chapter and was inspired by that organization’s commitment to enriching the Jewish people and repairing the world. Hirschfeld went on to become President of his class at Brown, a position he continues to hold almost forty years later.

These experiences cemented Elie Hirschfeld’s belief that giving back to the community, and to humanity at large, provides personal as well as societal enrichment. Mr. Hirschfeld has gone on to support numerous educational institutions, hospitals, Jewish organizations, and other excellent non-profit groups. He created the Hirschfeld Foundation to expand his personal efforts.

Mr. Hirschfeld encourages you to learn more about the Elie Hirschfeld Foundation and its beneficiaries, and he welcomes your comments.
