In Israel, we work toward a secure homeland for the Jewish people, a thriving democracy and an inclusive society that cares for its most vulnerable. We aim to drive and support long-term systemic change through investments in leaders, organizations and U.S. public policy.

Our Story

Our philanthropic journey began in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1987. Together with their children, Charles and Lynn Schusterman decided to establish a family foundation as a way to give back to the causes and communities closest to their hearts.

Our Mission and Values

Our work is inspired by our founders’ deep commitment to Jewish ethics, values and lessons. Our values shape the beliefs that inform our investments and define how we approach our work.

Our Approach

We believe systemic change happens at the individual, organizational, field and sector levels. That’s why we fund charitable and advocacy activities and run programs to prepare leaders to be drivers for change.

Our Team

Meet the caring, innovative and impactful professionals who work on behalf of the Schusterman family’s philanthropic vision and in partnership with our grantees to support the work they are leading.

Where We Work

We pursue more just and inclusive societies for all people in the U.S. and Israel.

United States

We invest in Criminal Justice, Democracy and Voting Rights, Education, Gender and Reproductive Equity, the Jewish Community and the Schusterman family’s hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.


We invest in strengthening Israel as a secure homeland for the Jewish people, a thriving democracy and an inclusive society that cares for its most vulnerable people.

We each have a capacity to make a difference. We can and we must do our part to repair this world.
