What We Do & What We Believe
We don’t see ourselves as philanthropists. We see ourselves as fortunate community members banding together to do our best by fellow citizens.
The Family Philosophy
The Zidek Family Foundation
Experts tell us not to use the word “help” on our website – that it’s too saccharine, too earnest.
We use it anyway.
Because at our core, we are helpers: Citizens equipped to judiciously support causes that speak to us – causes that promise practical and care-driven outcomes.
We step in and support organizations for whom worthy goals are a dollar amount away. We strive to level figurative playing fields so that opportunities become a little more equal.
Our process is more laidback than most. Sometimes we see a qualified situation in our offices, communities, or schools, and simply turn to each other and ask, “Can we help?”
The Zidek Family Foundation is a Florida-based non-profit that provides funding to grantees in the Philadelphia region (our home) and in Florida (where our matriarch spends most of the year).
While technically “cause agnostic” – that is, open to any worthwhile need – we are inclined toward general funds or specific projects that benefit children faced with socioeconomic hurdles.
We hope you’ll reach out if there’s a specific need that can be alleviated by one-time or ongoing financial support.
