Create. Collaborate. Change.

Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies supports innovative programs that change the world. We have four current grantmaking priorities: saving the cheetah from extinction, improving pediatric asthma care, ensuring the continuity of the Jewish community in the Washington, D.C.¬†region, and improving education outcomes for District of Columbia public school students. We also fund selected special projects that help stop Alzheimer’s, fight against bullying and hate, and support wounded and disabled war veterans.
