“The hallmark of our philanthropy is our commitment to invest in people with the values, ability, and passion to change the world.”
--Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel
The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation was established in Cleveland, Ohio in 1953. The Foundation creates and operates programs and institutions in its priority areas and also partners with existing institutions whose mission, values and operations are in consonance with its own.
The founders, Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel, believe that exceptional leaders are the critical factor that enables organizations to contribute most significantly to society. Such leaders are guided by a powerful vision of the future that is inspired by profound ideas, and energized by imaginative solutions to today’s problems.
The Foundation has the following priority areas of engagement — Leadership Development, Management of Nonprofits, Humanities, Jewish Life, and Urban Renewal.
