The Erich & Hannah Sachs Foundation ("Foundation") was established in 1997 by Reynold M. Sachs to honor his parents, World War II immigrants from Germany. Having themselves faced intolerance and economic hardship, Erich and Hannah Sachs developed deep commitments to tolerance and improving the quality of people's lives, by creating greater economic and educational opportunities for those less fortunate or less able.

The Foundation is managed by a small group of professionals, enabling a maximum of its annual funding to go to exemplary charitable programs. The Foundation strives to minimize salaries, overhead and administrative costs, both its own and those of the charitable organizations and institutions it funds.


Foundation provides financial support, usually in the form of low interest rate loans known as Program Related Investments ("PRI's"), to a variety of 501c3 tax exempt charitable organizations and institutions.


There are no application deadlines and proposals may be submitted at any time. Receipt of all applications will be acknowledged in writing. Applications are promptly reviewed as received, typically within 30 days.
