OVERVIEW: Steven Price and his wife Tina do their grantmaking through the Tina & Steven Price Charitable Foundation, which does not appear to accept unsolicited proposals. The family is active in the New York area Jewish community and serve on several key boards. Other priorities include education and policy. Philanthropy seems to largely track with personal ties and board memberships.
BACKGROUND: Steven Price graduated from Brown University, and earned his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law. Price worked in M&A at Goldman Sachs before working as an attorney. He also worked at Centerbridge Partners, a private equity firm where he led the firm’s investment efforts in telecom, technology and media. In 2009, he founded Townsquare Media, a media, entertainment and digital marketing solutions company.
JEWISH CAUSES: Tina Price's board memberships include serving as a director of Israel on Campus Coalition, and as a chair of Hillel International. Price, meanwhile, is on the board UJA Federation of New York. Some of the couple's work in the Jewish community involves education and youth. The Prices, via their foundation, support organizations like BBYO, "the leading pluralistic teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experience", American Israel Education Foundation, Columbia/Barnard Hillel, The Jewish Museum, UJA Federation, and Project Kesher, which seeks to "transform women’s lives, restoring their Jewish identity and providing training in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Israel."
EDUCATION: The Prices have given strong support to Price's alma mater Brown University. The Prices are also Brown parents. Other grantees have included Tina's alma mater, Barnard College, Columbia Law School, and The Masters School.
POLICY: A component of this couple's philanthropy involves policy organizations like the Hudson Institute, American Enterprise Institute, and Council on Foreign Relations.
HEALTH: Grantees include Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Mount Sinai Breast Health Resource Program, and The Magic Foundation, "an American nonprofit organization which helps families of children diagnosed with a wide variety of different growth impacting medical conditions."
LOOKING FORWARD: Price is only in his 50s and very much engaged in business, but expect this couple to continue their steady philanthropy, particuarly in the local Jewish community.
