JEWISH FUNDING AREAS: Israel
OVERVIEW: Nathan Low moves his philanthropy through the Sunrise Charitable Foundation. His giving largely focuses on the Jewish community in the United States and Israel.
BACKGROUND: Nathan A. Low graduated with an A.B. from Harvard College in 1982. He worked at Salomon Brothers as a VP as well as at Bear Stearns. He went on to found Sunrise Financial Group and Sunrise Israel Tech, a growth engine for Israeli start-ups.
ISRAEL: Given that Low has been an active investor in Israel for years, it's no surprise that some of his philanthropy goes to efforts in Israel. He's helped fund American Friends of Shalva Israel, the PEF Israel Endowment Funds, and Stand With Us. Likely also related for Low, he has also funded the Clarion Project, whose self description is that it “challenges radical Islam and promotes human rights.”
EDUCATION & YOUTH: Grantees include Yad Avraham Institute, a Torah learning institute in New York City, with very modest amounts to additional organizations.
LOOKING FORWARD: Low's giving through his foundation has been fairly modest recently, but expect his interest in Jewish institutions, especially related to the state of Israel, to continue.
