Building on Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert’s legacy, our work is aimed at improving communities in Southern California and Israel.
Focusing on a small group of clearly defined program areas allows us to invest for the long-term and develop strategies for contributing to lasting change.
Within each focus area we identify organizations that match the Foundation’s objectives and have developed a clear path to achieving excellent results. Whether it’s a small project with some risk or a large, well-established organization, we view the work as a partnership, which enables us to build meaningful relationships with an organization’s board and staff. This relationship-based approach allows us to offer many forms of support — not just financial — and to solicit feedback from our grantees and from voices in the communities where we serve.
