Foundation Update: 

Bruce Hirsch will retire as executive director of the Clarence E. Heller Charitable Foundation at the end of 2024. With Bruce’s departure, the Board of Trustees has engaged Hirsch Philanthropy Partners (no relation to Bruce) to assume full management and operations of the Foundation beginning April 2024. In this transition year, the Foundation is pausing the open Letter of Inquiry (LOI) submission process and will only be accepting applications from recently-funded organizations by invitation. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period of transition. Please come back to our website for updates.
