Goldstein Foundation

The purpose of the Goldstein Foundation fund is to provide general support for our community and was started in 2011 with a generous gift from Jack and Joann Goldstein. Jack Goldstein is regarded as one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Manhattan's history. When he passed in 2010, he left a legacy of charitable giving that outlives him by arranging for annual gifts to local charities and non-profits.
