I am board chair and President of the Tuttleman Foundation, a family foundation created in 2003 as a vehicle for the philanthropic efforts of my parents, Stanley and Edna Tuttleman, and our family.


Stanley and Edna strongly believed that community involvement is vital to the vibrancy of society, and that philanthropy is a responsibility that all share.  They practiced a model of engaged philanthropy, committing their time, skills and experience to numerous organizations.  We strive to apply the values evidenced by our founders in both continuing their legacy and in finding new areas of passionate interest to the current trustees.


We have historically chosen to focus our charitable efforts in 5 areas:

  • Education

  • Arts and Museums

  • Community Building and Basic Human Services

  • Health Care

  • Spiritual Development


Current organizations that we are actively supporting include (among many others):

  • Insight Meditation Society

  • New York University School of Law

  • Robert and Helen Bernstein Institute for Human Rights

  • University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School

  • Friends Seminary

  • Barnard College

  • New York University, Tisch School of the Arts

  • Temple University

  • Philadelphia University

  • Steppingstones Scholars

  • Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

  • The Franklin Institute

  • Magee Rehabilitation Hospital

  • Athena Film Festival

  • New York Film Festival

  • Fringe Art Festival

My philanthropic board memberships include most notably Trustee of New York University School of Law, Insight Meditation Society (board chair, executive committee, finance, development and ED evaluation committees), and Friends Seminary (development and School Head evaluation committees).
