The Foundation’s general purpose is to carry on the vision of its founder, Samuel Rubin, whose life was dedicated to the pursuit of peace and justice and the search for an equitable reallocation of the world’s resources. The Foundation believes that these objectives can be achieved only through the fullest implementation of social, economic, political, civil and cultural rights for the entire world’s people.
Geographic focus, Funding range, and Eligibility
There are no geographic limitations, and we accept applications for general operating expenses as well as for specific projects within an organization.
