About Ron.

Ron graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and received graduate degrees from New York University and Teachers College, Columbia University.  As an idealistic public school teacher working for a very modest salary in 1983 and wanting to help improve the world beyond his classroom in some small way, he invited several like-minded friends to form a volunteer working group. They organized a tax exempt charity and gradually began to build a small publicly supported endowment that generated annual interest income to be given as grants to worthwhile charities doing many kinds of good work in the world.
