The Greenbaum Foundation focuses its funding primarily on international innovative human rights projects benefiting women, children and youth -- abolishing all forms of modern-day slavery; ending child marriage and female genital cutting; fighting child abuse and neglect; stopping trafficking of children and women for sex and forced prostitution; and the use of children in armed conflict.
Recently, the Foundation began supporting projects aimed at improving world health by promoting whole foods plant based diets, and also innovative projects promoting the humane treatment of animals. The Foundation looks to assist new, creative and well managed organizations in getting off the ground, providing those organizations with guidance, networking, and funding during their early years. The Foundation will on occasion assist more established organizations during periods of expansion.
Established in 1992, the Foundation became fully operational in 1999, and has been funded by Jim Greenbaum, its Managing Director. Since inception, the Foundation has granted in excess of twenty-one million dollars to a wide range of projects all over the world. Annual grants generally exceed two million dollars. The Foundation does not seek donations from the public; nor does it accept unsolicited proposals for funding.
The Greenbaum Foundation is a USA based 501(c)(3) Private Grant-Making Foundation
