Welcome to the Guttman Foundation
The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation, Inc., a New York not-for-profit corporation, was organized in 1959 by Charles Guttman, a successful New York businessman with a profound social conscience.
In its history, the Guttman Foundation, which currently has over fifty million dollars in assets, has contributed more than fifty-eight million dollars to charitable organizations, principally in the New York City area and in Israel.
In keeping with the interests of Stella and Charles Guttman, most of the contributions have supported the delivery of social services or improved educational opportunities, with an emphasis on the needs of children, youth, families and the elderly. The Foundation has worked collaboratively with other foundations to finance significant projects that it could not undertake on its own.
The Directors of the Guttman Foundation are grateful for the opportunity to continue the charitable legacy of Stella and Charles Guttman - a legacy that has, at its heart, the ethic of people helping others in need.
The Foundation's guidelines and program priorities are currently under review. Please check our website in the near future for updates.
