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.
