Thomases Family Endowment - Application Deadline May 15

During his lifetime, Irwin Thomases was generous to both the Jewish and secular communities. He created this endowment so that upon his death his philanthropic values, including ensuring a Jewish presence in the general community, would live on. It was his hope to better the world in which we all live. The Endowment seeks to promote a spirit of tzedakah. There are three application deadlines each year - January 15, May 15, and September 15.
