About the Foundation
The Two West Foundation is a non-profit,
charitable foundation, established in 2002 through a donation from the
heirs of Andrew Goodman, co-founder of Bergdorf Goodman. The Two West
Foundation, is an independent organization with its own board, and is
entirely separate from the Bergdorf Goodman company.
The Foundation offers grants to
not-for-profit organizations throughout the United States which
facilitate progressive social change by addressing the underlying
conditions of societal problems. Although the Two West Foundation
doesn't prioritize any particular issue area for funding, we do focus on
the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating
social change in any number of areas including programs in education,
arts and culture, the environment and public health. All of the
Foundation's funding decisions are made by the Foundation’s board of
trustees that meets three times a year to review proposals.
