How Does Your Donation Help?

When you donate to the Hertz Foundation, your investment pays dividends for all of humanity. You are directly empowering the most promising innovators to tackle some of the biggest challenges we face—from the health of our families to the health of our planet.

Funds more innovators.

For each $250,000 donation, we can offer a five-year graduate fellowship to one more promising innovator, including tuition, stipend, and lifelong career development.

Develops great leaders.

One of our most powerful differentiators is our continual support for our fellows, including mentoring, networking, and workshops. Your donations help us expand that support while unlocking our staff’s potential to do their best work.

Protects future generations.

Formed in 1957 by Fannie and John Hertz, our endowment is essential to our long-term financial stability and vitality. It ensures a thriving fellowship program and life-changing innovations for years to come.
