How Charles Bronfman turned naysayers into supporters
Charles Bronfman focuses on
building a “better mousetrap”
For thirty years, the Foundations associated with The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies (ACBP) operated and supported programs in Canada, Israel, and the United States to strengthen the unity of the Jewish people, to improve the quality of life in Israel, and to promote Canadian heritage.
From its inception in 1986, ACBP was envisaged as spend down philanthropy, dedicated to strategically leveraging its entire endowment by the year 2016. This decision was a reflection of Andrea z"l and Charles Bronfman's belief that they could do the most good by empowering the next generation to pick up the gauntlet of innovation and create programs on their own terms.
