Higher Education & Youth
“…the diffusion of knowledge among the people. No other sure foundation can be devised for the preservation of freedom and happiness.”
— Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson prized education as the basis of a democratic society. That value is shared by the Milsteins, whose philanthropy in education is guided by three principles. First, support gifted students – those most likely to be productive members of society – who need only a financial boost in order to realize their potential. Second, provide a competitive advantage to universities to secure the presence of top notch teaching and research faculty. Finally, provide additional resources to educational facilities to enhance learning.
