Background

Incorporated in 1959 in UT; reincorporated in 1981 in NY - The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Inc. was established in the State of Utah in 1959 by its founders, Fan Fox Samuels of Hartford, Connecticut and Salt Lake City, Utah, and her husband, Leslie R. Samuels of Ogden and Salt Lake City, Utah. Mr. and Mrs. Samuels were married in 1940 and settled in New York City. After forty one years of residence in New York City, their active business, social, and cultural lives were concentrated in the Metropolitan area and they felt the foundation's support should be targeted to the betterment of the people of New York. Therefore, in 1981, The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Inc. was reorganized in the State of New York as a not-for-profit foundation
