The Phil Zwickler Charitable and Memorial Foundation Trust was established in 1993 and is dedicated to advancing those issues and causes, and to empowering those people and groups, to whom Phil Zwickler was devoted throughout his lifetime. He was especially devoted to supporting efforts to combat AIDS; to protect the environment; and to defend and support the homeless and other oppressed groups.

The Foundation seeks to promote human rights, education, health and the arts, specifically with respect to the gay and lesbian community, and generally with regard to those individuals and groups who need assistance to survive and be heard.

The foundation is focused on providing financial support to non profit organizations, academic institutions, and students within such institutions. We are especially seeking to create collaborations between our grantees, and would look favorably toward funding to those who make such an effort. In addition we can offer a hands on approach to building such partnerships if the need arises.
