OVERVIEW: Gary Zwerling and his wife Marie Rose Zwerling move their philanthropy though the Zwerling Family Foundation. The foundation has given under $500,000 annually in recent years. The Zwerlings have given particularly large sums to Museum of Jewish Heritage and Babson College.
BACKGROUND: Gary L. Zwerling worked at Goldman Sachs and was a longtime partner. He keeps a rather low profile.
EDUCATION: The Zwerling family via their foundation has steadily supported Babson College, home to two endowed chairs in the family's name, created with a $1 million gift. The couple are Babson parents and Zwerling sits on the board. Other grantees have included Wesleyan University, Columbia University School of Dentistry, and Teachers College Fund.
JEWISH CAUSES: Gary Zwerling serves as a trustee of Museum of Jewish Heritage, which the family steadily supports via their foundation. Other grantees have included Friends of the IDF, UJA Federation of Northern NJ (Zwerling is on the board), Jewish Family and Children’s Services, and Jewish National Fund.
HEALTH: Zwerling has long been involved with American Federation Aging Research (AFAR), beginning his relationship with the organization when he was still an active partner at Goldman Sachs. The family has directed grants to AFAR, via their foundation, as well as places like Arthritis Foundation NY Chapter (Zwerling is on the board of governors) and Memorial Sloan Kettering.
LOOKING FORWARD: Expect the couple's steadily philanthropy in their select interest areas to continue. It's unclear if more money will move out of the doors in the coming years.
