Mission

The Lisa and John Pritzker Family Fund seeks to help create a thriving, healthy and inspired community. We enact this mission by focusing our core support at the forefront of children’s health and education, Israel and Jewish affairs, and the arts and civic life.

Our primary interest is in helping vulnerable populations. We pursue innovative solutions to the problems that these populations face, and endeavor to provide them with the tools they need to lead happy and productive lives.

We believe that health and education are the building blocks for success, and this belief shapes our philanthropic endeavors. We also work to elevate contemporary imagination, understanding and society through investments in arts and civic life, and to sustain a vital and dynamic global Jewish community. The Fund gives highest priority to organizations addressing issues of compelling need, possessing potential for meaningful impact, and guided by strong leadership.
