Promoting Tolerance and Diversity
Sabrina Merage founded the Sabrina Merage Foundation in 2008 with the intention of building bridges between diverse societies through educational programs for young people to promote tolerance and diversity. Through strategic social venture partnerships and cutting-edge initiatives, the Foundation brings people together to mitigate anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry that breed hatred and misunderstanding throughout the world.
The Foundation focuses on programs and organizations that center around:
Through the lens of these three objectives, the Foundation finds progressive solutions to address the problems of intolerance faced by adolescents and young adults through organizations such as Hand In Hand, Building Bridges, and the Jewish Venture Philanthropy Fund.
The Sabrina Merage Foundation deploys its resources in collaboration with partners to achieve significant results and sustained impact, ultimately leading to a more peaceful world. In 2014, the Sabrina Merage Foundation partnered with Moishe House, a pluralistic international organization that provides meaningful Jewish experiences to young adults in their 20s, to establish their Global Community Fund. The Sabrina Merage Foundation issued a challenge and dollar-for-dollar match up to $50,000 to all new supporters to this fund which supports groups of young and dynamic leaders in places that are well-positioned for a Moishe House, but lack the necessary financial resources to get it off the ground.
