Philanthropist, Harold Grinspoon Foundation

Grinspoon founded his eponymous foundation in 1993 with the goal of “enhancing Jewish and community life in Western Massachusetts, North America, Israel, and beyond.” With organizational power it’s done just that, with programs in all three locales offering diverse opportunities in the arts and education. Of special note is PJ’s Library, which, founded in 2005 and funded jointly by Grinspoon and local communities, sends age-specific books and CDs for free each month to 100,000 Jewish kids ranging in age from 6 months to 8 years.
