Guided by the mission to give a hand up not a hand out. The Salah Foundation is a private foundation that supports non-profit organizations in the United States that strengthen families and communities and advances individuals to become productive and responsible citizens. There is a special interest in education, medical research, community development and self-sufficiency programs aimed at the economically disadvantaged, the young, the elderly and the disabled.
The Salah Foundation runs a targeted grant process and select organizations will be invited to apply.
Founded in 2010 and self-funded from the James and Beatrice Salah Charitable Trust, The Salah Foundation is a living tribute to James M. Salah’s lifelong success and generosity. His entrepreneurial spirit could not be contained and his passion lives today in the impact work and change management that The Salah Foundation is creating nationwide.
Under the leadership and guidance of his niece, Noreen Salah Burpee, The Salah Foundation has given away over $60 million dollars since inception.
The Salah Foundation does not actively seek publicity for its grant making. It does, however, permit grantees to acknowledge The Salah Foundation’s financial support if they deem it useful in advancing their mission and work.
