Create. Collaborate. Change.

Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies supports innovative programs that change the world. We have four current grantmaking priorities: improving pediatric health in the Washington DC region, increasing opportunities for students in District of Columbia schools, promoting compassion and protection for animals, and collaborating with other funders to create vibrant Jewish life in the United States. We are also interested in philanthropic innovation, building philanthropic capacity, and fostering philanthropic partnerships and collaborations.
