Tisch Foundation. They support a variety of organizations, including Tufts University, New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Medical College of Cornell University, 92nd Street Y, Citymeals-on-Wheels, and others that are active in education, the arts, and healthcare. BACKGROUND: Jonathan M. Tisch graduated from Tufts University in 1976 and got a job at WBZ, then Boston’s NBC station. He worked as a cinematographer and editor, receiving several Emmy nominations. Tisch went on to become co-chairman of the board and a member of the office of the president of Loews Corporation, and is also chairman of its subsidiary, Loews Hotels. He is also an owner of the New York Giants NFL team. ISSUES: EDUCATION & YOUTH: The couple steadily supports Tufts University, where Tisch is a vice chair of the board of trustees. The extended Tisch family has strong ties to the university. In the early 1990s, the family gave a $10 million gift supporting the expansion and renovation of the Tisch Library on the school’s Medford/Somerville campus. In 2006, Tisch and his brother Steve gave a $40 million endowment gift and named the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life. The couple are also major benefactors of Lizzie's school, University of Michigan. Tisch's parents were also Wolverines and met at the school. Jonathan and Lizzie gave a $5 million gift to University of Michigan to support students in the School of Music, Theatre & Dance (SMTD) and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA). Other grantees have included Children's Golf Foundation, Prep for Prep, Town School, Tisch School of the Arts, and Pratt Institute. HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES: Grantees have included New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Medical College of Cornell University, American Cancer Society, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Mount Sinai Health System, and Hospital for Special Surgery, home to the HSS Tisch Sports Performance Center. ARTS & CULTURE: Lizzie Tisch is a retail entrepreneur who founded style venture LTD. The arts are another important component of this couple's giving. Early in the decade, the couple gave $10 million to The Met to create the Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery within its Costume Institute. The couple have also directed millions to an emerging outfit called The Shed, which was launched to "commission, produce, and present the full spectrum of performing arts, visual arts, and pop culture." Tisch serves on the board of The Shed. Other grantees have included Dance/NYC, Intrepid Museum Foundation, Lincoln Center, Roundabout Theatre Company, Friends of the Highline, and Tribeca Film Institute, where Tisch has been on the board. JEWISH CAUSES: The couple, like other members of the Tisch family, have directed millions to Jewish Communal Fund, which "facilitates and promotes charitable giving to sectarian and non-sectarian organizations through donor advised funds." Other grantees have included Central Synagogue, UJA Federation of New York, Tufts Hillel, and Chabad of Southampton Jewish Center.
