The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation

The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation

The Stella and Charles Guttman Foundation, Inc., a New York not-for-profit corporation, was organized in 1959 by Charles Guttman, a successful New York businessman with a profound social conscience. Mr. Guttman was born in modest circumstances on the Lower East Side in New York City. After amassing his wealth, he concerned himself with the support of worthwhile causes and assistance to others who were less fortunate. Upon their deaths, Charles and his wife, Stella Guttman, bequeathed substantially all their assets to the Foundation. Because the Guttmans spent their lives in New York City, and directed the majority of their charitable contributions to local projects, it is the policy of the Foundation to direct most of its grants to organizations providing services in the New York City metropolitan area and in Israel. The Foundation supports a wide range of traditional education, health and social service programs in Israel. In addition, the Foundation has in recent years supported social and educational programs for Arab Israelis and efforts to promote coexistence between Arabs and Jews in Israel.
