About The Harold Grinspoon Foundation
The Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s mission is to enhance the vibrancy of Jewish life in North America and Israel through education and experiences that impart the knowledge and values of the Jewish heritage and the joys of being Jewish. The Foundation primarily funds institutions and programs that directly transmit Jewish learning to children, adults, and families. The foundation’s two signature initiatives are; The PJ Library® which is now in over 100 communities sending high quality Jewish children’s books to over 50,000 children monthly, and the Grinspoon Institute for Jewish Philanthropy which has helped to transform the field of Jewish overnight camping.
