Helen Bader Foundation surpasses $250 M in giving

Following its latest grant and investment cycle, The Helen Bader Foundation surpassed the $250 million giving mark.

The foundation’s fall round of funding is backing projects throughout the state and internationally with more than $7 million in grants and program-related investments, which include loans and equity investments.

To date, the 22-year-old foundation has awarded more than 6,200 grants and 39 program-related investments to thousands of nonprofit organizations. The foundation has also aided government entities and for-profit ventures aligned with its mission, which supports programming addressing Alzheimer’s and aging, workforce development, community programming for youth, Jewish education, and the arts.

“Looking back over the past two decades, I am simply amazed to see the accumulated impact the foundation has made for people,” said Daniel Bader, president and chief executive officer of the foundation. “Over the years, we have learned that you only see results in people when you invest in people, and the only way to make progress on challenging social issues is to build strength through a diversity of tools and partners. My mom’s (Helen Bader’s) spirit is forever felt in the programs and research that help individuals reach their fullest potential.”
