Repair the World exists to make volunteer service a defining part of Jewish life and provides communities with opportunities to take action. Service to the community was a significant part of Helen’s life and the efforts Repair the World was pursuing in Atlanta ideally matched the goals of the fund. HMSF provided the financial resources necessary for Repair the World to begin their work on the ground in Atlanta and identify the needs of the local community.
We wouldn’t be here without the Helen Marie Stern Fund.
“We wouldn’t be here without the Helen Marie Stern Fund” says Lily Brent, executive Director of Repair the World Atlanta. “They allow us to do what we do and provide us space. It’s really rare to find funders who put so much trust in their grantees. They were the first to join in funding us and we wouldn’t be here without them.”
