The Bernheim Foundation
The Bernheim Foundation is an IRC 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity whose mission is to ease animal and human suffering through the direct action of people who care. It was established in 2010 by Steven Jay “Bernie” Bernheim, a Los Angeles attorney, entrepreneur and philanthropist.
One hundred percent of funding goes directly to ease suffering. Thus far, all funding has been provided through Steven Jay’s personal philanthropic commitment.
Steven Jay and the Foundation have already given sleeping bags and hygiene kits to thousands of homeless on skid row and in Venice and Santa Monica, and truck loads of blankets and supplies to L.A. animal shelters.
Contributions to The Bernheim Foundation are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
