The Gemma Foundation is a private, independent foundation established by the Brod family. Sharpening our focus, going deeper, asking questions about how we can help create lasting change; that is the work we've taken on.


We are committed to assisting a broad array of groups, organizations, and individuals. The mission is to discover and advance effective ways of helping people help themselves and those around them to lead productive and satisfying lives.

The foundation has been dedicated to advancing education and Jewish preservation, both domestically and internationally, focusing in the US, Colombia, and Israel. Though we have mostly committed to these areas, we are open to helping a broad range of causes and people.

Virtually all of Gemma’s giving is premised upon a matching funds philosophy, whereby each family’s donation to a nonprofit organization is matched dollar-for-dollar by the Foundation.  The idea is to make a greater impact for the benefit of each recipient organization by doubling family donor gifts.


Let’s make a lasting change together. Get in touch with us.
