The Good People Fund, www.goodpeoplefund.org, is a US-based organization that provides financial support and professional guidance to innovative grassroots non-profits. This month The Herb Alpert Foundation has granted them a further $150,000, bringing their total commitment to $800,000 over the last six years. The partnership is based on strategic grant making and philanthropy, supporting programs that find inventive ways to focus on issues related to well-being in the United States.
“Through the work of the Good People Fund,” explained Rona Sebastian, President of The Herb Alpert Foundation, “we can help these grass-roots programs get a foothold and receive the funds and support they desperately need to impact change.” The Foundation, www.herbalpertfoundation.org, is the vision of legendary musician, sculptor, painter, and philanthropist Herb Alpert and his wife, Grammy Award winner Lani Hall.
“We are grateful for the continued support that the Herb Alpert Foundation has committed over the years,” explains Naomi Eisenberger, The Good People Fund’s Founding Executive Director. “The partnership has given us the ability to discover and nurture many unique below-the-radar initiatives that routinely find exciting ways to ease the burden of hunger, homelessness, poverty, elder care disability and more, and in so doing impact vast numbers of people. This partnership is strengthened by a shared core philosophy of elevating the work of highly effective organizations that strive to change the world in positive ways.”
Founded in 2008, The Good People Fund, inspired by the concept of repairing the world, responds to significant problems such as poverty, disability, trauma and social isolation, offering financial support and management guidance for small to medium grassroots efforts in the United States and Israel. The Good People Fund believes that small actions can have huge impacts through personal connections. Since its 2008 inception, the organization has raised more than $6 million dollars.
