is a private operating foundation established in
New York State in 1998. It is classified under section
4942((jj)(3), tax exempt under section 501(c)(3).
guiding us is that of Nicolaus (Miki)
Lempert (1918 -1977). Throughout his life Miki humbly
and forcefully embodied qualities we cherish and promote,
foremost among them tolerance, understanding and generosity.
Selfless and tireless, Miki set an astonishingly positive
and powerful example for those who knew and loved him.
We aspire to carry on in his name with works consistent
with his values.
Foundation is small. Over half of our expenditures take
the form of donations to support like-minded charities
and institutions, with the remainder supporting our
own initiatives and programs. We accept proposals
by invitation only.
