Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for education and the environment.


Incorporated in 1957 in IL - In 1958 Mayer and Morris Kaplan, father and son, established The Mayer & Morris Kaplan Family Foundation as a manifestation of their commitment to "Tzedakah," a Jewish concept of helping others and encouraging justice. A large portion of the Foundation's resources came from the 1986 sale of the family's business, Sealy Mattress Company, and a bequest of funds from lifelong friend Jerome Joss.
