Welcome to MauriceAmadoFoundation.org, the official website of the Maurice Amado Foundation.
Established in 1961 by Maurice Amado, the Maurice Amado Foundation is a family foundation that has been directed by members of his family since 1968. For several decades the Foundation primarily supported organizations that served members of the Sephardic Jewish community, promoted knowledge of Sephardic Jewish culture and heritage, and expanded knowledge of the contributions of Sephardic Jews to Jewish life. More recently, the Foundation has awarded grants to a wide array of charitable organizations that reflect the philanthropic interests of the Foundation’s Directors and Advisors.
The Foundation generates its own request for proposals and unsolicited proposals are not currently accepted.
