The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation (Schusterman) is focused on strengthening the global Jewish community, public education in the United States and the quality of life in our hometown of Tulsa, OK.
At the heart of our work is providing young people with the knowledge, self-confidence, experiences and resources they need to better their lives and, in turn, to apply their talents and skills as leaders in their communities, the Jewish world and beyond.
Even as our philanthropy has evolved to meet the needs of an increasingly complex and interconnected world, we have remained rooted in the same core values that drive our investments: a commitment to the paramount importance of repairing the world; of caring for the communities closest to our hearts and ensuring they are rooted in inclusion, equality and diversity; of ensuring vibrant Jewish life and the broad embrace of Israel; and of providing young people with greater access to quality education.
We help to ensure a vibrant future for the Jewish people by empowering young Jews to create and engage in meaningful Jewish experiences and by fostering inclusive Jewish communities, understanding of and connections to Israel and a global Jewish service movement. We work in partnership with a range of people, programs, organizations and communities to broaden the reach and diversify the appeal of Jewish life. LEARN MORE
We contribute to strengthening the public school system in the U.S., and specifically in Tulsa, by supporting efforts to make high-quality education available to all students, close the achievement gap and prepare today’s learners with the skills and knowledge they need to become tomorrow’s qualified workforce and engaged citizens.
