About the Foundation

As heads of one of the leading real estate families of New York City, Paul and Irma Milstein established the PIM Foundation in 1994 as a successor to the Milstein Family Foundation.

“It’s been our privilege to contribute to building the New York of today. We feel a great responsibility to, and pride in, this city, which has been so good to us. With that in mind, the PIM Foundation is committed to maintaining New York’s heritage, while addressing the pressing medical, educational and cultural issues of our time.”

– Paul and Irma Milstein

In keeping with those priorities, the PIM Foundation concentrates on New York City Institutions, with a primary focus on culture, medical research and Jewish communal organizations.
