Additional Descriptor






Established in 1966 in CA - The foundation was founded in Los Angeles, CA in 1966, by Harry Roth, Louis Roth, and Fannie Roth. Upon the death of the founders, and the sale of the family business, Louis Roth Clothes, the foundation was funded. The foundation continues to include all family members, with two generations involved, at present. Philanthropy always has been a strong family value: to help others who may be less fortunate, to protect freedom and human and civil rights, and to be able to give back to the community and support causes about which the family cares deeply. Compassion, justice, fairness, access, and respect for others are part of the family's values, which inspire and motivate the foundation's giving.
