Since the early 1980s, The Wexner Foundation and its affiliates have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in charitable and philanthropic activities around the world. The Foundation’s organizing framework has been built on developing leadership though investing in programs, people, and institutions.
The core of The Wexner Foundation’s philanthropic work has consisted of leadership programs that Foundation staff run and operate—investing in individual leaders. But the Foundation has also pursued its mission by supporting institutions and programs which serve crucial functions in enriching Jewish life and employing and training leaders for the North American Jewish Community and Israel.
The Wexner Foundation has invested in a wide variety of programs such as Birthright Israel, Hillel International, CLAL, HIAS, PEJE, JESNA and many more.
A constellation of people; thinkers, academics, researchers, practitioners, and innovators in Jewish life and in Israel have helped advance The Wexner Foundation’s mission and programs.
