Background

Established in 1996 in CA, US; The Eisner Foundation was started in 1996 by Michael D. Eisner, then-Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, and his wife Jane to focus their family’s philanthropic activities. In 2015, The Eisner Foundation became the only U.S. funder investing exclusively in inter-generational solutions to overcome society’s most persistent challenges of inequality, lack of access, and injustice. The foundation first identified the need for such solutions in 2011 when it established the Eisner Prize for Inter-generational Excellence, awarded annually to superb inter-generational organizations nationwide. Today, The Eisner Foundation gives an average of $7 million each year to nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles County.
