The Aronin Family Foundation supports innovative community-building initiatives, focused on economic development, neighborhood revitalization, and expanding access to the arts.
While all economic development is important for communities, The Aronin Foundation’s particular focus is empowering entrepreneurs to innovate and attract ‘patient’ venture capital, as a means to create jobs and revitalize neighborhoods.
