Foundation Management 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. As we embark on a thoughtful management transition, we will be temporarily pausing Letter of Inquiry (LOI) submissions and will provide an update about our 2024 grantmaking process in the coming months. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period of transition. Please come back to our website for updates.
